this is the first design i did. i did it all and then forgot to account for the thickness of the plywood so it may be a hair off. Also would i want to put my sub where it is or moved it further to the left or how would i choose that?

Hard to check when your measurements don't add up.

Like you said, you didn't take into account the MDF thickness, so everything is kind out of whack and can be 3/4-1.5" different depending on how you look at it. For instance, the front and back width. 34.75" is what you have listed for the back, and up front you have 31.75" plus a 3" wide port...but what about the left side that adds an extra 3/4"? See what I mean?

i suggest using google sketchup, its free, very easy to use once you understand it and so convenient for making boxes lol

I just downloaded the google sketchup so ill do it again and remember to take in account the thickness of wood

you need to factor in port displacement, sub woofer displacement(which you don't know yet), and displacement of wood. all this stuff can be done on the 12volt.com, they have some decent calculators over there. and anything you come up with, double check with other online calculators to verify.
