I want about 2.5 cu ft slot ported box.Heres the deminsions from REs website
Width is 36"
Depth is 15"
Height is 13.5"
Slot port width is 3"
Slot port length is 11.5"
Slot height is 12"
The thing that connects to the port( tuning thing i guess? goes out behing sub) is
24 "
Sub cutout is 11 1/8 "
Does this seem right, would it be loud

It ends up being roughly 2.5 cu ft tuned to 35 hz. would that be good daily driver. i was going to buy a subzone box but will see how this works :driving:
will cover with carpet

1 4x8 sheet is enough, bottle of wood glue, 1 5/8" coarse thread drywall screws, and you are good to go.

make sure you plan your cuts before you go at it with a saw. Also, if you find that you have quite a few pieces with on dimension in common, just have them rip it at lowes or where ever you buy the wood.

As far as planning though, just draw a rectangle with dimensions in inches on it of a 4 x 8 sheet and just make sure you utilize your wood.
