i need help from a profesional sub box desinger.

im rying to design a sub for my clarion ssw1001 signiture series dvc sub that is runing at 2 ohms

these are some specs i found on the net but cant find enclosure measurments.

Enclosure Airspace = 1.0 ft3 net
Vent = 2.5 diam. x 12.79 long
Fb = 30Hz F3 = 25.11 Hz
Max Peak Music Power 2,000 W
Max Power 1,000 W
Nominal Impedance 2 or 8 Ohms
Fs (Hz) 33.5
Qms 4.27
Vas (Ft3 / Litre) 0.533 / 15.1
Mms (grams) 190.7
Xmax (mm) 24
Sd (Sq. M) 0.03
Qes S/P 0.753 / 0.753
Re S/P (Ohms) 6.4 / 1.6
Le S/P (mH) 1.517 / 6.067
Bl S/P (Tm) 18.47 / 9.236
Qts 0.64
2.8 V SPL S/P (dB) 80.66 / 87.75
no S/P (%) 0.073
Vd (ft3 / Liter) 0.071 / 2.0
Mounting Depth (mm) 177
Outside Diameter (mm) 277
Cutout Diameter (mm) 230

(ether i dont see the measurements im looking for or im just a little screwed up in the head)

What is it you're after? Sealed,ported? WinISD, manufacture recommened? I run my Clarion SSW1200 in a ported box that's 15% bigger then what's factory recommended. I've built a few boxes for this sub to hear what sounds best and do yourself a favor, use the port diameter that's recommended, it helps control the sub. I thought it a bit small, but every box I built that I used a bigger diameter port, it sounded uncontrolled. I have the factory specs (manual) in the bedroom, but my wife is asleep.

Also, iirc, sealed .75 cf, ported 1.0 cf, but I don't recall the ports dimensions.

OK, I've got the manual now.

Per factory requirements.
Sealed: .5 ft^3 net
Qtc= .721, F3= 45.22 Hz

Ported: 1.0 ft^3 net
Vent= 2.5" diam. x 12.79" long
Fb= 30 Hz, F3= 25.11 Hz

Hope that's what you were after.
