I don't think I'll my box design other than dropping the height to 4' and rouding the edges. I'll use the crossovers from that link provided by sreten and lduarte, keep it external for a while and tweek the crossovers and pipe length with listening tests.
One thing i am a little confused about is that i was under the impression that the RS180's were designed to be in a ported enclosure due to their EBP = 75, but a few people have suggested that they shouldnt be ported when i add the sub. Would pluggin the port mean i would need to change anything about my original crossover or would that be solved by having a low pass filter on the woofer when i cross it over with the sub?
Once again, thanks for all the suggestions.
People waste a lot of time money, including me, on speakers(DIY or Brand)that dont satisfy..
Designing is not simple and you will likely end up with poor results..
