ok, so i am trying to figure all this out, i was using sites

Enclosure Volume Calculator - Subwoofer Box Calculator (http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/enclosure-volume-calculator/)

and

Car Audio - Sealed Subwoofer Speaker BOX DESIGN - Qtc Calculator (http://www.carstereo.com/help/Articles.cfm?id=30)

to determine how big to make my box for a 6.5 CDT M6+

info here: http://www.cdtaudio.com/pdf/HD-M6plus_07.pdf

can someone tell me how big i should make the box external dimensions. thank u. i was thinking of doing one either at 12w x 8h x 6d or 10w x 8h x 8d, would i tell any difference between the 2, or would u suggest a better size, thank u

please someone help, i can't figure this stuff out, i thought it was as easy as just looking at the specs, but i guess i made my box to big and i just want some direction on how big i should make it.

It's in the CDT pdf you linked. 0.3 cubes is what you should aim for. I didn't realize you hadn't looked at the pdf.
