That looks like enough information to start building the cabinets with. My only question at this point is with securing the front panel to the cabinet. Since the driver is internal, the front panel needs to be removable in case something goes bad with the driver. One easy way I can think of is to use button caps (screw covers) on the panel. Is there a better or more preferred way to do this?

Hi,
Stuff evenly/carefully using recommended weight of stuffing material:
Counted from the closed end to halfways down the line.

Mandatory:Insert bracings(dowels <= a foot between)) in this volume too.
If necessary:Trim the 3/4 wave dip with denser stuffing near the S1 area.

bjorno: fabulous, fabulous, fabulous, Worked on the build all weekend long. I have one of my 2214's in a ported box. The other is sitting in your "monster" tapped horn enclosure design. The comparison not even close. The low side is smooth as silk. Thanks for your help.

I checked using one driver: Will work too if you are easy when turning the volume knob on your amp.

?"simulations in this thread are for using two drivers". Does that mean that there are 2 drivers in this one enclosure? The simulation was done with 2 separate enclosures and 2 drivers. Because I am planing to build one more if necessary.
