    http://www.diamondaudio.com/PDF/curr...dEnclosure.pdf

    i wanted sealed but they dont have a plan for sealed, so i'll do open enclosure. but i need to know how uch wood i need and what the cost of the wood is going to be roughly, as well as other things in might need so i dont have to trip back and forth tolowes or HD.....

    i have a saw, table saw, wood glue, nails, caulking gun...

    You should be able to do that with one sheet if it is cut correctly... a sheet of 3/4" MDF is usually $20 +/- $3.

    thanks JK. hows the humidity?
    Very welcome... 103 with a heat index of 110 and 80% humidity today (or something like that). In simpler terms, pretty **** hot. I hear it is pretty good weather over there? Have a few family members that live in ha-li-for-ni-a... as a comparison, it was 110+ when I was there last summer and it felt like 90 feels here. No sweating at all, I loved it! I'd take that PURE heat any day as opposed to the half and half of humidity/heat we get here...

    Joseph.

    Re: how much wood is needed and how much for this plan?

    one more thing. does the subs have to be set in on on "D" or can i put the subs in "A"? if i put them in on "D" and i put the box in the back of my wagen when i throw things in there they may hit and rupture the woofer, but if i set them in "A" with woofers pointing up and vents firing to the back is this okay?

    how much would it change the overal sound if any... im limited to space...

    i was going to stand the box up, but 18.5" is a tad to tall and i wont be able to use my securutiy cargo cover to keep people from seeing in

    Either fire it up or fire it facing the rear and put an ugly grille on it... as for how it will affect the sound, really the only way to know that is to try it; try it and if it sounds good then good, try it and if it sounds bad, then you have to start over again.
