I think I'd just add like 1 or 1.25" to the top (red) and bottom (blue) pieces, and make the whole thing about 1.5" taller.

Looking up what kind of volume my subs need now.

Found it - recommended volume for a sealed box is .85 ft^3. Does that double with two subs?
Yeah, definitely watch out for mounting depth. The vent pole (on the back of the subs magnet) needs about 1-1.5 inches of breathing room.

Yes, volume doubles with adding another. You may want to consider extending the enclosure outwards, but then you'd have to account for the angle of the floor changing to flat (from incline) - that would kinda suck.

Thanks for the info's Matt, I too am going to copy it exactly. You used MDF 3/4'' correct? How much do you recall it cost at home depot/lowes?

Maybe you could add some more info for us that are going to be first time box builders in the near future! Like.. what material is used to seal the seams on the inside, and what I am really interested in is about the install of the speaker wire terminals and the install of those. Can those be had from say, radio shack?
haha, no prob Chris!

Yes, I used 3/4 MDF - it's about 20-30 bucks for a sheet at the local hardware store. I think Lowes sells quarter sheets, so that may be easier for some to work with.

Yeah, I'll add some more info to the original post about consteruction for sure! I'll probably get to it tomorrow. I'll let ya know when it's been added.

Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

Do you happen to know the max height of the box without interfering with the cargo cover? Even if I have to ditch the cargo cover I'm not that concerned - that is how I'm rolling now.

I want to say 13 inches max before 1/8" of carpeting.

Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

I'm gonna get to drawing tomorrow night with some graph paper... I'm thinking I'm gonna have to bring the box out to the edge of the cargo tray to have enough depth.

This is where you'll have to re-figure some of the calculations (see red line)

Yup! I used a $15 jigsaw. The spec sheet will have cutout hole size on there. It's usually one inch smaller than the overall diameter. Sandpaper (or electric hand sander) is a good investment as well.

Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

Yeah those are both on the list of Ryobi One+ Tools to add to my collection.. lol

One more thing, on the skil saw, do you recall what degree of angle you had the saw set at to make the cuts?

I have no idea man. I just kind of winged it (totally not like me too) and it came out perfect, lol. If you draw the lengths out on a piece of wood and then connect the two end points you'll get the correct angle (and line to cut down)... then line up the blade with that line. If that's confusing I can probably draw it out in paint, lol.

Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

Nah I understand what you mean. Sounds like a plan, now im sure those of us that are going to replicate the exact size will be off by a little here and there. Do you think it'll make a really big deal? I for one have already changed my mind from that CVR 12 we talked about, and am going to go with a CVR 10 so I can still use the cargo cover and tray for the amp.

Lets just say it pays to be as exact as you can... you can get away with 1/16", but it gets tough once you hit the "off by" 1/8" mark. What I do is make any necessary changes after I cut each face. For example, if I cut a piece and it happens to be off slightly, I'll see if I can change any future cuts to accommodate the slight change. If not, screws can usually bend it close and then the glue + silicone can usually make it right. As I told Frank, triple check EVERY SINGLE MEASUREMENT BEFORE YOU CUT! I've caught things before on check number 3. MDF is pretty cheap, so if you screw up you can always run up to Lowes and get a quarter sheet for 5 bucks.
