For the Kicker Comp 10's. They require like a minimum of 1 cu ft of air space in a sealed box, but for a truck I can only find boxes that are .75 cu ft of air space. Would poly fill make up for this? How much would I need to use?

find out what kind of area you have to work with and measure it. do the formula for volume and see where you can stick it and make the box to fit.
don't EVER BUY prefab boxes unless their from the company your woofer is by and its made SPECIFICALLY for that woofer or you'll have some pretty bad results.

I'm getting two though. I'd have to use a common chamber then if I wanted over 1 cu ft of space.

Do they make enclosure's for 12's for your vehicle?   That box may have your 1ft3. Some prefab companies accept cutout requests.
This is what I do for FUN!

no as the subwoofer is going to take up space by itself. Your best bet would be to make your enclosure as big as possible with staying around 1cf; 1.0xx is fine 1.xxxx is slightly to much.
Get in the sweet spot and there you go volume calculator this is what i used to calculate my box volume.
you give it width-height-depth and it gives you how much space you have.
It also takes in account for wood thickness.
That's not a spam link I don't know what happened to the other link i posted but i hope this one sticks its useful.
