Enclosure Air Space ?

So if I were to get a sealed enclosure with 1.1 cubic ft of space and use a sub with a minimum of 1.125 cubic ft, will it noticeably affect performance of the sub .

Well, I guess it would be like having a 44in Chest, but getting stuck wearing your last year's 42in jacket to your aunt's cousin's sister's nephew's wedding. It would work, but would be a tight fit making it kinda tough to do 'the hustle.' But that's just me...

I'd go with the correct size box if you want to get the best sound out of the sub. Matching your equipment can make a HUGE difference in sound quality.

the bass will be a lil bit tighter. i miss calculated one time and built a .80 box for a 1.25 min and that box sucked even tho it was a nice box.

well you are really very close, i would go with it and use some polyfill. Throw some of that in there and it will trick the sub into thinking it in a larger box.

use polyfil within the box... it'll help fool the volume of the box for the sub

Well the box is pre made to fit into a Ranger. Its this one. I was hoping to use this sub.

How much poly fill do you think I should use?

I barely listen to rap so I'm not worried about loud deep bass.

Will using a sub that requires 1 cubic foot of air space in a 1.1 cubic box have a negative effect on sound? I know ist better to match exactly but the box I want hides the sub.

But now that I think about it, why get the box that hides it if it looks out of place anyway. Here is the box.
