I guess I haven't posted enough to toss in a url, so I have the shot as an attachment.

3/4 mdf
front/back: 12.5 x 12.5
left/right: 8.5 x 11
top/bottom: 12.5 x 8.5
hole diameter: 9 3/8
volume: 0.6 cu ft

Just threw this together in Sketchup, its for my Kicker s10d, going by the manufacturer's guidelines to drop the volume of the box to 0.6 cu ft when using more than 350 watts of power.

Did I mess anything up? Is there anything I should change? Any input would be appreciated.

Looks fine to me....put you a small 45 in the bottom corner behind sub......it can help with standing waves.......we used to put them in our sealed boxes years ago when I was doing comps..........

3" wide piece of mdf by the length of the box with the ends cut at 45degree angles

Could anyone point me to an example of this? I'm having a terrible time visualizing it.

Also, would slanting the back piece of the box do the same thing?

See red circles? Only you would only need the one.

Yes slanting the back will work.
