    Need help designing/making a box... 8" sub for my computer.

    Well, lately I have been wanting to buy an 8" sub and build a box for it to use with my computer. I am thinking maybe a MA audio 8" or something along those lines.
    But, I need help designing a box. It can't be huge. I want it to be ported. I am a total box noob, so I will need help with cubic feet and everything.
    Let me know what you can do for me.

    8" subs like around 1 cube net ported. You won't need a huge port mouth, and as a result you won't need a seriously long port.

    Stick the port up the driver's end of it.
