Default Subwoofer 30l possible?

Hey,
I would love to build a bigger subwoofer, but I am stuck to the outside measurement of 33x33x39cm.

Do you have any recommendation for a subwoofer chassis around 30l?

I want to build a Subwoofer which fits into my Ikea Kallax shelf.

Amplifier: X1500H Denon
Front Speaker: BigYellowTaxi MK2
Rear: Teufel Motiv 10

I advise against that idea as you will get resonances in the Kallax but many 8" and some 10" will do fine in that size box.

You can always modify the shelves to fit in something bigger

I say go for it, my only concern would be vibration knocking stuff off the shelves. If you could figure out a way to go dual opposed that would be good.
An Alpine type r or SBA sb23mfcl45 do well in small enclosures with response into the mid 20hz range.

I've got a 2x4 kallax bookshelf on top of my sub.

I've always wanted to re build the sub to look exactly the same as the Kallax and use book fabric as grill to totally hide it.

Do you mean the SWR-12D2?

The xls10 would be a good option as well.

Sealed small box and a 12" SW driver with some eq from the plate amp will be nice and easy solution. Construction must bew very rigid, extra cross-braces recommended. 2x8" is also possible! 2x10" will suffer from too small air volume.

As driver consider also
