Default (Yet Another) small high WAF sub needed

Hi,

After the GH tests from recently, I decided (read: My wife told me) to make something a bit more easier to handle.
I do have 2 of these 'el cheapo' 10"-ers, Vas rather big (145 l), so I thought: Let's go isobaric (right?)
I've put some info in WinISD, did some sim, and ended up with about 100 liters, tuned to 30Hz.
I could make a 50cm cube, with a 12.5 round vent, 32cm's long. That's 125 liters, minux driver (say, 5 liters??) minus vent (4 liters) minus braces... could do, right? (I could stuff my little plateamp in there as well...)

My first question: is this realy the smallest (simple) enclosure? (Vented isobaric), 'cause 50*50*50cm still is LARGE, in my opinion...
Second: What else could I do to make an acceptable size, high WAF box for this(these) driver(s).

Tips'n'hints welcome!

Paul

Driver specs:
Size: 10"
Power: 300W
Fs: 34Hz
sens.: 92dB
Qms: 3.24
Qes: 0.52
Qts: 0.45
Vas: 145l
Imp.: 8Ohm
