    Use the Eminence Medium Vented Enclosure: 0.85 cf internal volume, tune to 60 Hz with a 3 inch ID tube (cardboard or pvc) that is 3 1/2 inches long. It's pretty similar to the Ampeg BA-108 design (0.68 cf, Fb=72Hz) suggested by JimmyM. Both yield similar results with this driver, although the Eminence design is marginally better for this driver. Either way, power handling will be limited to around 60w by cone excursion.
