Default My first T-line enclosure, will it be good?

Hi.
New chap from Norway here
Haven't built alot of enclosures before, and this is my first T-line...

Just wanted to hear some opinions about my current idea, since i have no idea of what i'm doing here.

Here's a drawing of my to-be enclosure. Feel free to give me some input, i really need it!

The sub i'm using is a Rockford Fosgate HX2 10" 2*4ohm dualvoice

Speccs:
500WRMS
1000Watts peak
30-200hz

Running it with a brand new Audison LRx 1.1k

square corners may reduce the midrange (and higher) passing through the pipe just a note from another thread.

So i should round off the corners so it's as smooth as possible, without any edges? If so, maybe a big PVC pipe would do, and fill the backside with some sorts of foam or something?

You want the opposite of as smooth as possible (you don't want mids & top coming out of the terminus) -- loose all the corner deflectors.

Without any T/S data it is impossible to say anything about the line function, i'd guess it is too small (how deep is it?)

There are also more efficient line foldings than what you have done.

So, as boxy and square as possible then? What is T/S data?

The measures are 1120mm width, 340mm depth and 330mm height. Using 22mm plates
