Default What style enclosure did I just build?

Hello all,
Here's my question, what style of enclosure is this? Could it be considered a 4th order bp, ported or sealed? Keep in mind I consider the vehicle to be the enclosure aswell.

This is located in the trunk. "port" fires into cab through backseat area.

Here's a model of the enclosure I'm just finishing up on...

Anyone care to run some models for me? I have driver and enclosure specs. I just want to see if what I got is the same. Thanks.

Give us the specs, I expect one of us will have some spare time to run the sims.

Here they are...

Do these numbers look right to you guys?

They can't even tell you the exact cutout diameter(16.5" is too small)

Here's the specs I have been using to model with...(I tried to save the above((posted)) specs and kept getting errors.)

The voice coils are dual 1 ohm. These speakers can handle 2500-3000 watts peak(even though the manufacturer says different)

The box specs are(for two drivers hence the x 2)...
4.23ft3 sealed x 2 (19.25x19.25x19.75) this does not take into account driver & bracing volume)
.857ft3 ported x 2 (this is essentially all port 19.25x19.25x4)
