    How much space is needed around the woofer ?

    Infinity 1042W, cutout diameter is 9 1/8, outer diameter is 10 3/8.

    Say I use 3/4 MDF, can I go with 10 or 10.5 inch depth, while width is a lot more ? And that's inside depth, outside the box would be 11 inches maybe less, maybe maybe tiny bit more

    You will be fine with your intended setup, it's pretty common to have an enclosure with one dimention that's barely wider than the sub. Some of my custom bandpass enclosures are only just big enough to fit the drivers in (think circle inside a square) and I have had no issues with that setup.

    The edge of my sub barely clears the edge of my box, not a problem.
