The animosity was being directed towards another member.

The box is just as important, if not more, then the equipment. Throw the specs of the sub into a program like WinISD and see what you come up with.

well as far as the box is concerned, i played with winisd and it says that this airspace/port combination is the best for this subwoofer...one concern i do have is that this box is wedge shaped, will this have any effect on the woofer?

Wedge shaoe has not hurt any SPL testing for us...But I will give you one thing to try.   If you can find the resonant frequency of your vehilce and tune 8-10 hz below it you will see a substantial gain in most applications, but generally this is a competition style box only!!!!!!!! they normally get tuned in the 45-50 hz range and will severly damage a woofer if used for music below the tuning frequency
If you list your vehilce I will probably know the tuning point of it or pretty close...let me know and I will see what I can dig up

I know the tib's respond to a CRX style box quite well.   2.0-2.5 cu ft with 2 (4in) aero ports with the tuning on the box at around 45-50hz This box is for 2 subs so you could go with half this for one sub.
Most of those cars I have been in have been the loudest using a frequency of 56-58hz so I would tune at about 46-50hz for whatever box you build
Remember 2 things...Not always does it sound alot louder, the human ear percives lower notes as being louder then higher notes, but higher notes are much easier to achieve with less strees on equipment.
2. Do not use these types of boxes for equipment, you will destroy woffers very very quickly, with most music it is very easy to run far below the tuning frequency and your sub may move uncontrollably if the suspension of the woffer cant handle it.
I hope some of this helps you in the right direction If you have any more questions just ask, I will check this post often
