The fact that you listen to sub 30hz music mainly but you have drivers that don't really like playing low frequencies makes a box a little tough to do correctly. Then you have an amp that can potentially fold the cones of cvr subs.

Soooo you need normally one kinda box because you like lows, then another kinda box because you have more power then you need. Then you have a vehicle that doesn't wanna play those frequencies either.

Someone is going to chime in with a low tuned box with lots of cubic feet of space. Your truck likes 39-41 hz though. So you'll need to decide which means more to you, playing lows and having a lot less output, or it being relatively loud

Here is a suggestion, power: to subs rated, amp subsonic filter to 28Hz, minimum port clearance 6", figure is just an assembly guide, bracing is a single 1 1/2" wooden dowel rod, port brace is 3/4" MDF:
