well as follows. i have a pair of atomic apx with AA mayhem recones. motor #872s (http://www.caraudio.com/forums/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=862s) . doing some talking to some spl members, i was reccomended doing a 25 x 12 x12 box with an external 8" aero. this is for sheer SPL. who knows how well it would do. next time i would probably bump it up the the 3 cubic foot area with 8" external aero after playing with BB6 and WinISD. but we'll see. anywho, heres for pics.

This is the rough end of the box. the top double baffle and front are clearly not glued. but how it will look. the sides will be black and the rest will be stained brown to match my wood grain interior followed by a clear coat.

I'm really happy with the sides. they turned out glossy and nice for birch. alot of sanding and layers. but turned out great.

cutting the double baffle was a PITA. it took forever using a saber saw through the 1.5" Birch ply. the blade bent alot.

as they sit comfortably.
this is for the aero fitment. very difficult cutting a perfect circle with a saber saw. followed using the router and hand sanding to try and get the smoothest surface.

IMO you're crazy to not double wall the whole thing if space isn't an issue and you're going for SPL

id go with a triple baffle all around and a quad baffle on the top... dont even worry about volume. just keep adjusting the port.

if that becomes an issue i will go around with another layer. and then looks will be forgotten.

I'm chasing a 50. New vehicle. New subs. New everything so we shall see. And this is the workshop we just used old kitchen cabinets and counters for a work bench and storage. Works wonderful

well today i ran all the power wire in the subbie. was pretty dificult. ended up running under the car, and found a nice grommet in the trunk area. pics will be had later. box just needs the port face glued. followed by the aero screwed. work and class is going to be rough this week. probably wont be much done.
