i'd tune to 30hz then, for a daily driver that will dominate lows, or 35-38hz for a box that will get loud and still have decent lows, but never go below a subs FS, just my opinion.

the enclouser volume is determined by what sub he's useing, since it uses the 1/3 princibal, so if a "regular" ported box is 4.5cf and abc box should be around 6cf, but ported is easier and will achieve almost the same results.

It could be less than that...I personaly believe the 1/3 rule is a rough guide and can be adjusted ....some depends on the vehicle too
