We need more information than that, my friend.

If it's that urgent, just build the biggest wooden box you can, airtight, sealed not ported.

A port helps to get more low bass, but you don't have any information about the subwoofer so you can't do a ported box.

That's why you should go sealed, and build the biggest sealed box the car can handle and the owner can tolerate.

More power will give more dB, but power isn't everything. You'll get deafening levels with less than 1200w ...
