    just build each chamber within the subs specs....you need wood glue, drywall screws, silicon, and 3/4" mdf (you should be able to only use 1 sheet, but you might need 2....its cheap as hell anyways like 15-20$/sheet). a screwgun /drill with phillips bit, circular hand saw or tale saw/radial arm.....and you got a setup to build ia great enclosure.

    box

    I would not use wood glue. Wood glue is great for hard wood wich has pores and grain to bond each piece. I would use liquid nails, Or cheaper route is using sub floor adhesive. (same as liquid nails.) The liqiuid nails when dry makes a nice bond between the pieces. Subfloor adhesive is by nature ment to expand and contract and still keep hold. The intense pressure in your enclosure will hammer that wood glue hard. A large tube of sub floor adhesive is cheap enough, 2.38 at lowes for a 16" tube. Hope I could help.
