Had a flash back to my days of building Transmission line enclosures. They suck, but great for a 8" or 10" Sub

I hate Carpet. I went to Vinyl on my boxes, but I am thinking about doing some Gel coats for my 66

He said it looks like a horn because your port looks like it's two different widths and crooked .
if so , you might as well scrap that box because its not going to work

well i built the box exactly to RE specs...... it clearly says that the length of "g" is 12" and the length of "h" is 23", which is what i did....
[attachmentid=222372]

is this right or what?...somebody let me know.

f is 3 inches, it may look crooked in the picture but its straight, 3 inches from front to back...... can someone just tell me if the design is right or not, i just want to know if it needs to be re-done.
