Default Marty Cube with Dayton spa1000 plate amp?

Hello Forum......I have been surfing a lot of sub-threads......I am now going to attempt a MartyCube build.
I have seen a lot of threads and photos of other projects.....all seem to have external amplifiction. I would like to build a plate amp into my unit.

Here are my measurements.....inches converted to cm.

4X 61x61....top, bottom, sides.
1X 61x57.....back.
3X 61x50.....2xfront baffle, brace.
1x 61x54....port bottom.
1x 61x45.....port back.
2X 5x54.......bottom rails.
2X 5x52.......back rails.

I hope the above measurements are ok. I will use 19mm MDF.

Dayton 18" Ultimax will go in.

How would I mount the spa1000 amp best? On the side? Has anybody mounted a plate amp in a MartyCube?

Any info would be good.

I would like to mount the plate amp on the back. I will of course have to cut a hole 10"x10".

My intentions are to separate the vent-rails by 10"...... Cut the hole and install......

Will this affect the performance of the sub?

Has anybody done something similar?

Won't you be blocking part of the vent if you do that?

If you block the vent, that will change Fb, which in turn may produce less than optimal results.

That is exactly my question. The vent wont be totally blocked though.......slight mod possible......I guess..........
The back vent board will be cut in a U-shape......permitting venting under the amp.....will this work?
