Question American Bass HD box questions

My friend just bought a 12in American Bass HD with an Audiopipe APK-2500

We're kinda stuck on box designs. We were told by some people at a shop that theres no "set" airspace for these subs. It's competition level so basically it's whatever you want.

Has anyone every worked with these? We were also told to brace the box like no other, and make it of 2 sheets of 3/4 in MDF, glue and screw them together, and BOLT, not screw the sub to the box.

Internal volume??
Port size??

Any recommendations would be totally appreciated. I'll post anything else in the "off Topic" and "Other Car" section so I don't jack audio threads in the RamforumZ since this wont be going in my Ram or even a Ram. Feel free to PM me or anything
Thanks

That's what I meant, apparently the manufacturer (or anyone) does not supplies you with any form for specifications. I guess the thought process on that is because they assume you're going to do whatever you want with it hah.

And yeah. If everything goes according to plan, It should completely rattle apart his 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse.

Yeah it even came with a sheet of paper with like a thousand different numbers for a thousand different things and we have ZERO clue what they actually mean. Crazy details for those crazy sub enthusiasts! but NO recommended internal volume or port size at all... hahaha

haha yeah! i know about flexing! My two 15'' Memphis C3's flex the middle of my tonneau cover about an 1-2 inches....

I'm actually selling them..

Why? They're almost too good.... The crappy prefab box I have now for them is entirely too small, the port is probably way off as well..

So basically on top of building a box for the the 10" Memphis Power Reference subs I have, I'd have to build one for the 15's as well, and those would take a pretty hefty box. I just don't have the time for all of it. Realistically to use both the 10s and 15s i would need to run 0 gauge and a second battery, which is out of my price range for right now. Plus I need some cash for my EMT classes haha.

But as far as the actual question. I love them. I really want to hear them in a box thats at their specs, but oh well. haha.
