also how much space do you have that you want to use?

you want something around 1.75 to 2.5 after speaker and port displacement. Tuned around 35Hz. Find the plans closest to those and ull be happy.

2 @ 35hz or 2.35 @ 33hz.

would i need to add braces inside the box if i used one of those box designs? and would this sound better then a premade box? i plan to get the mdf tomorrow and start making it :)

so i finished making the box but havent tried it yet. how long do u guys suppose it will take before the glue and liquid nail to dry? and is it ok to drill a small hole and run the wire through or it'll sound ****** this way and i should seal it back up?
tell me what u think about the box and if it looks done correctly :)

not bad.....looks like you used too many screws tho..........

Looks good, put a little silicone on the wire where you brought it out of the box to seal it up tight.
EDIT: that grill is ugly!!!!1
