    i would say a pair of ported 12s with 2-3K of power would be louder.

    Meh, It would have been awesome in a full wall, but you can't seem to be able to do it. I would try to find someone that could help you with it. Maybe someone close lives by you on these boards, I don't know, but not feeling that new setup at all.

    Should have just made the biggest box you could fit in that area using striaght and properly glued seams. That little bit of area you are gaining by using weird angles and glass you will lose 10 fold in integrity. You just build the biggest box you can, brace it foam it, and then make a face to seal up the front of the box into a wall.

    Ding!

    Still want to make sure it is the right size enclosure though.
