I was thinking of building a box for my sub to use in my living room, it's the 15 MKII.

I was going to go with 7cu/ft tuned to 24hz with 55"^2 of port area.
Would this work well?
It's mostly for music, movies maybe in the future.

here are the specs for the sub:
Fs 26 Hz
Qms 5.5
Qes 0.51
Qts 0.47
Vas 113 liters
Znom 1 Ohm parallel
Re2 0.75 Ohms parallel
Le3 0.45 mH parallel
BL 15.9
Sd 749 cm2
Xmax 28mm one way linear
Pmax4 1600W RMS, 4800W peak
SPL5 87.6 dB @ 1W, 1m
Diameter 15.5"
Cutout 14"
Depth 8.25"
Volume 0.18 cubic feet

I have it in a 4.6cu/ft tuned to 29hz right now and yes, its loud and get somewhat lower, lower than most subs I've heard. but according to WINsd it peakes somewhat high. I'm going for something with a smoother response that will play lower.

adire used to have white papers for all their subs with enclosure specs. I'm sure someone has them saved...

I modeled it and this is what came out to the flatest response. Anything smaller would have a peak somewhere.
