Help....building a box for 4 - 10's

As the title states I'm needing some help building a box for 4 RE REX 10's. For the rear seat I will be moving/removing the power window motor, rear carpet, jack mount, vents, and all else that needs to go.

For external dimensions I have:

Length: 58
Height: 16 1/4
Top depth: 3 3/4
Bottom depth: 6 1/4

With the dimensions I have listed above get me in the ball park to fit behind the back seat? I also will be running speaker grills to avoid the subs hitting the seat.

I've seen a few companies out there that sell the 3 - 10's box but nothing for 4. I'm a metal man myself(welding, sheet metal work, etc.) and if I could build it out of 1/4 plate that would rule, but my carpentry skills are not the best............so I'm either looking to buy or have someone near central IL help/build me one.(beer & food provided)

Can anyone help me out?

length-60
height-17
top depth-3.5
bottom depth-6.5

use mdf 3/4" and you won't need bracing inside with that thickness. use the grills to protect the subs and you will be good to go. Don't use metal to make any kind of speaker box. The what are the specifications on those subs what kind of air space do they require, I couldn't find that info.

Yes, I will take pictures of the box that I build. I do plan on taking out all the plastic, and air vents sealed off. I also plan on relocating my power rear window motor too.(could be opening a can of worms there)

According to RE they take anywhere from .35 to .5 cubic feet, so I hope they should be good to go.

that should come out pretty good then. you will have to remove the vents and put dynamat over the openings and it should fit good.
