    need some help designing a box.

    First post, so here goes.
    I got a pair of 10" Wildcat subs last weekend from a friend of mine, traded him a noname sub in a prefab box for em.

    They were in a beat up mtx prefab box, covered in holes, so built a temporary sealed box for one of them, just so I have some bass till I make a more permanent. box.

    Thinking of making custom fiberglass boxes for these, only thing is I dont know how man Cu ft. I need for each enclosure, found the wildcat website and found some info for the subs

    WC - 1005
    10" Subwoofer
    Impedance 4 Ohm
    Magnet 156mm (50 Oz)
    Freq. Response (Hz) 45 ~ 1000
    Fs 45 Hz
    Qts 0.40
    Vas (L) 32.546
    RMS Power 100W
    Max Power 200W
    2" 4-Layer Kapton Voice Coil

    Can anyone translate this for me, Any help would be greatly appreciated
    (sorry for the newb question, but the only other sub I ever had was sold inbox)

    I should probably mention that I listen to techno, metal and rock, if that helps at all *shrugs*

    Ok thanks, the box I built is way to big for it then. I figured I'd done something wrong as the sub is frapping at higher volumes/lower notes. where as my cheap no name didnt at those same volumes.

    Re: need some help designing a box.

    Just out of curiousity, were you able to get that from the specs, or just by personal experience with similar subs?
    TIA

    (btw I'm very impressed by this site, and has already answered tons of questions that I've had about car audio sytems)

    Edit:Also thought I'd ask if those dimensions are for a ported or sealed box
