Default cabinet for B&C 18sw115

hello everyone, my name is Luciano and I've just come to the forum.
I am here to ask for help you to build a cabinet for the subwoofer 18sw115.
I'd like to make the cabinet that I have attached, but I do not know if the measures are correct.
It is touring218sw I downloaded from the site.
The image is only half the full-length, with a program I have tried to measure the design, but are not able to do a simulation with hornresp to see if the size that I have given are correct.
I think these are the speakers in these cabinets
I'm still looking for a cabinet for single or double use live.
Thanks in advance

Hello Dan, thank you for your interest, but I do not see the measures of the size and positions, this image you have built yourself or you found a site you trust?
I have done others on a new picture and I noticed that the mouth should be wide SLR of about 10 cm from the center of the flap in the middle of the cabinet ... not from the bottom, but in front of the woofer.
I noticed the image that you entered the area in square millimeters, but no action, how can I do?
Thank you and sorry my English is very bad.

Hi Luciano,

You could estimate this enclosure in Hornresp with the following scheme. Exporting it as an AkAbak script allows you to correctly follow the expansion profile throughout the horn. Adding more area's as needed.

I do not know what your carpentry skill are, you might be interested in Cubo 18 as it is also suitable for the mentioned driver and aims at the same frequency response/output/overall size.

Either which cabinet you build preferably use 18 mm, 13-ply baltic birch.

Best regards Johan

yup , a cubo'isch design.
my advise is ,bild them in singles(cubo works wel)and just stack them.
it gives you more flexebility when you have more than 2,and it doesn't ruin your back so much.
my 1.5 cents
