so here is my first draft, never built a box, and im in iraq, so it wont be built for a little while this will be for 2 10's and i know some of te measurments arent perfect, in fact on side is off by like 2 inches... but tell me if this is a good start and what i should change

ps this is a rough draft please dont flame me i would appreciate help

2 cu ft and 38 hz.. sorr i forgot it the first time

also port should be 3x12, and 27.5 inches long... not quite sure how to do that.. as far as measuring it... i just kinda guessed... and the internal dimensions needed to be 22.5x20x12 the subs will be getting roughly 2000 watts total, and i do want it to sound good on music, everything from rap,rock to electronic anything else you need to know ask, im not building this for a meter, but would like to try it out once after its done.. i dont have T/S parameters i bought the subs from michaellane and they were built by ssackett so i guessed their combined displacement at .38

any advice is appreciated

the subs not really.. i do have some space constraints.. free plans are nice, but wouldnt fit and i would actually like to learn how to do it the amp is an ap 3000.1d the subs are d1 and he said they will do well on 1000 rms, so wiring them all parellel gives me 4 ohms and that equals roughly 2000w from the amp however thats not really all that relevant to my knowledge..

second try.. 2.5 cubes at 36 hz, gross displacement is 3.54 let me know what you think..

good bad or otherwise some feed back would be nice

also i know my sketchup skills **** and not having an external mouse doesnt help

would i get more responses if i said i was going to make it out of particle board? how about cardboard? or bamboo...

from just looking at the design, looks like you are going with a pair of 10's?

id choose the second on eo over the first.
