Default Using an existing ported enclosure

I'm using an existing bass reflex? box with 1.28 cu ft ID & a 5.6" dia hole cut the .5" thick front baffle. Using a WGS Veteran 10" (20W) I'm using this for electric guitar which is a full sounding combination. Wondering if someone could calculate the frequency response, etc. or maybe point me to a program that will. Thanks.

WGS Veteran 10" specifications:
Fs 97 hz
Re 6.7 Ohm
Le .30mH
Qms 15.18
Qes 1.51
Qts 1.38
Vas 1.29 cu ft
Cms .19 mm/N
BL 6.15 T-M
Mms 13.96 grams
Sd 36.61 cu cm
Spl 95 db

Impedance varies with frequency, use impedance plots of your drivers and make crossover calculations using the actual impedance of the driver at the crossover frequency

Thanks, this seems to be about what I'm hearing, a lower mid boost that sounds good as a guitar cab.
