Default Subwoofer Boxes - Recommend one ?

I have owned and used 2 different sub woofer enclosures since I purchased this vehicle in 2004. The first one was a huge box with two 10's and the second was an "under the strut bar" with two 10's.
The big box used all my trunk space, so I switched t the under the strut bar box. Neither box was ported.

I have (2) JL Audio 10's, but I am not sure whether or not to continue using both. I am also using a JL Audio JX 1000 amp.

In your opinion, what sub enclosure would you use ? (Not nec. the ones that I have)
Ported or not ?
1 or 2 subs ?

I realize sound can be a personal preference. I would like to hear from 350Z owners who are happy with what they got (or experienced).

Over the years: I went from from a single 12" RF sub in a sealed box, to two JBL 10s sealed, to a single band pass JBL 10, now I'm down to a single sealed 8" Kicker CompR stored away in the cubby where the Bose sub would be. I still enjoy listening to a well balanced crisp system, just don't care for the bass vibrating the entire car and what feels like my heartbeat being thrown off, if that makes any sense.

I use the JL Audio subwoofer enclosure that is specifically made for our cars. It houses 2 x 10" subs. A year or so ago one of the subs blew out and they no longer made it. I purchased two of the replacement/newer subs and put them in the box and they work perfect. I forget the model subs. It sounds good, clean, hits hard, and blends right in. I have them paired to a JL Audio 5.1 sub which also drives my front components, rear components, and the subs. I would recommend going on their website and checking out the enclosure. I've had mine for a little over 12 years now and love it. A little off topic but I recently started dynamiting the areas behind the factory speaker locations and it has made a difference for me in terms of reducing rattle and i just feel like it gives cleaner sound as well. I would recommend this to anyone interested in a nice home project and a bit better sound.

Good to hear! I picked up a JL audio enclosure (subs not included) off CL last year and will install it this winter as part of a sound-system upgrade project. I have two 10 inch Infinity Reference 1000S subs ready to install in that box, and I'll be upgrading the front and rear speakers to Infinity Perfect 600 components. Also have an Alpine 5-channel amp that I'll use to power it all to start. So, to the OP, I can provide feedback on all that next Spring, most likely
