How deep/how loud does it need to go?

I have two Apex Jr. Super 8's on order. They should be happy in 1/2 cf sealed, but WinISD says f3 is 66 Hz, f6 is 50, f10 is 38. Not room shaking, but maybe good in a vehicle with cabin gain.

The vendor suggests 0.83 cf with a 2" x 6" port. I'll probably push the tuning somewhat deeper. You could probably get by in 0.7 cf, but at some point there won't be enough room for the port tube.
Insert witty signature line here.
