Default Enclosure for DD2512a

Hi

I will have to build enclosure for Digital Designs 2512a. I will try to build one from DD site. As they say sub takes about 6L of space. Box would be made from 19mm(0.75in) MDF. I would go for 50cm x 50cm for top and bottom side, this will be base for everything else(green ones on page). Left and right sides(yellow) would be 50cm x 32cm. Back side 46.2cm x 32cm. Front(red) 39cm x 32cm, with hole= 29cm, 5cm from each side of the board.

Port(red) is 32cm x 32cm, which makes 7.2cm x 39cm x 32cm high port.

Is that ok?

I ask this because box should have about 60L or 2.25^ft, but I calculated only 47L, without port...Should I add port volume as part of box volume that sub uses? If I do that I get to 56L, that is ok, right?

Should I change anything or... comments are most wellcome

Hi

There are 33 of 35 screws on top, 2 are not there because there were too long. There are another 35 from bottom + 4x 5 that hold each side together, so that is 88 of 90 screws total

That you want? To send you original pics?

You should be able to see all of them ...

Hi

Loooool don't tell me that you like it so much?? I didn't even finnished it yet, should at the end look like it was/should be part of trunk that it is in . But thank you very much... I have to say it came out pretty good if I tell you that I did only hand drawing from top (1/10 scale) to get size of sides, so I could buy them, everything else was done pretty much as it was build, about 5-8 working hours later this came out... I just wanted to build it as fast as possible, to hear the sound of speaker... First test, about 30s from when I started car, turned on headunit and selected some song from USB, sound came out and I was left . All other speakers before that I heared were nothing compared to this.
