Default Getting feet wet

Hello all,
First post here and a newbie to the diy scene. Looking for an inexpensive first project with full range speakers. I do have a pair of 8" drivers from some old Allied bookshelves that the cabinets are a TOTAL loss.
Drivers are Knight KN 807 8" accordion surround and cast frames. 8ohm 15watt w/whizzer cone. No coil rub and work fine.
Internal cab dimensions were 18 3/8"h X 8 5/8" w X 7 5/8" d with a 3 1/2" id X 4 1/4" length port. Just a thin layer of insulation was glued along all the walls, including the back panel. Seems that these cabs were not specifically built for these drivers as there were other holes in the baffle to possibly include 2 way and 3 way versions. Holes just simply covered up with particle board screwed on.
Now to my question. I would like to put these drivers into a floor standing cabinet. 36"h X 10"w X 12" deep (these are my maximum dimensions I can have)and possibly in a Half-Chang type of enclosure. I already have 3/4" particle board on hand, screws and glue. Just simple butt joints is what I had in mind as I don't have to many woodworking tools. Circular saw, jig saw, a few hole saws, square, tape measure and a drill to be exact!
Now, not having any driver t/s parameters or any test equipment/programs to model in anyway whatsoever, this is all a shot in the dark I realize. Just wondering if anyone has used this particular driver that would have more insight as to what type of enclosure would work best.
Simple 2 channel w/no sub in 12"x 18 room is where these would be used. Any and all advise/suggestions would be appreciated, Thank you.
