Hey, send me a mesg. let me know where you are in Canada. I have 6, 7, boxes and never used P2s.
I was going to make some up and sell them on Ebay; and will someday.
The box and driver would be in the 20lbs range.

Here's the woofer, about 5"deep.

We found out about them when we put one in a Chevy Blazer, and realized it was a nice little sub.

This box is a large at .37, but it will give might give you some ideas.

Cut up a cardboard test box, see what you can live with.

Is there a technical 'mininal' distance the magnet has to be from the back wall of the enclosure?

Many drivers have rear vent holes in the magnet structure to get rid of heat, as a rule of thumb the width of the vent would be a good bet to not reduce the heat transfer.

Thanks, I was refering more with the relationship to sound, if it doesn't have much impact on that I don't think my subs can really over heat at the level they're pushed in such a small truck cab

Sound shouldn't be an issue, if the vent is too close to the back wall it will "chuff", but you won't hear it buried in a cabinet.
