I just bought a new Polk DXI 124 DVC 12 inch dual-voice-coil sub woofer and to save myself some money I am building the enclosure for it. I was wondering what the best dimensions for the enclosure are, and what materials do I need

.75 mdf- about $10 per sheet, coarse thread drywall screws, liquid nails, weatherproof silicone sealant, fabric or paint, spray glue, drill and table saw or circular saw are good to have, also, I like to use a rotozip to cut the hole for the sub(s). Always predrill before screwing together....

$30 for a 4x8 sheet is about average...the $10 sheet he's referring to must be a 2x4 size piece.

Well he didnt buy a DCON, so thats not helpful.

Your spec sheet that came with your sub has recommended box sizes, then u make make the box whatever shape you want. Although rectangular is most common
