Default Which Sub(s) for 1cu3 internal & 6" depth?

I've attached a screenshot of my boxnotes.
My exterior dimensions with .5" plywood comes out to 1cu.ft. internal.
Probably .92cu.ft. after sub & bracing are installed.

I'll be building two of these boxes for a very particular under-carriage truck application. Firing up through the front floorboards via vented holes.
Depth isn't very much. ~6" depth.
While width is 9" and length is 45".

It will be for an open-air truck.
Tons of digital amp power, whatever I need.

I listen to hard rock and newer jazz.
So I want tight, loud, hard hitting bass.
Which means I'd really like extension to 30hz if possible, but I don't expect it in an open air vehicle with tiny open air enclosure.

Again, it'll be two enclosures.
One under each floor board (passenger & driver).
Each with 1cu.ft. internal before sub/bracing.
With open-air, I don't want anything visible inside the cab.
Think of a Jeep without a top.

Budget is debatable.
I'm willing to save up for the right product.

Three 6.5" per side would be kind of sexy.
Total of six 6.5".

But keep in mind, since this is an open-air vehicle, I lose all that free bass you might get in a hatchback or something.

That width and depth is going to be a big limitation.

Vented holes in floor like a mesh or are you cutting holes?

Will it need to survive rain or fair weather vehicle?

Yep, my thinking is a mesh type setup to retain as much floorboard strength as possible.
It will need to survive outdoor life. No garage.
The truck has a soft-top so rain is not an issue in the interior, which will be carpeted.
And I was thinking of painting the undercarriage enclosure first with all-weather sealer and then truck-bed coating.
Then silicone around the face to ensure a tight seal into the cabin and to keep moisture away from the face of the driver.

This is not a thread to debate different amplifier classes or types.

Sorry, but there isn't anything to debate. D does not mean digital. Plain and Simple. Not saying anything regarding amp designs or which is better/worse.

I would go with 2 or 3 jl 8w3v3’s per enclosure, there’s lot of high output 8’s out there but these are very impressive and requires a very small sealed or vented enclosure.

Ar you only interested in this application or have you considered a center console enclosure? Otherwise, I think the 8w3 mentioned above would be good. Or another highly rated sub would be the Image Dynamics ID8 and IDQ8.

Oh wow, that's crazy small.
I'll have to create a WinISD file and see how it looks without cabin gain.
Thanks for the recommendation!
Maybe I should look at the ported as well, to try to recoup low end loss from lack of cabin gain. I'll check them both out.
