    www.partsexpress.com has all you need.

    Read and understand this thread before you start:

    Cabinet Building 101

    You can buy bass speakers for $15 each.
    You can also buy them for $400 each.
    There is a difference.
  3. I assume you're serious about this cab building thing.

    Buying "The loudspeaker design cookbook" by Vance Dickason is the best investment you'll ever make, even if you only build one cabinet in your entire life. Knowledge is cheap. A cab that sounds like crap because you didn't have the proper knowledge is a waste of money, so it's a win/win situation. Buy the book, do a little homework ;).

    And search for threads about cabinet building on this board. You'll find plenty.

    Then, when questions start to pop up in your mind, we'll be happy to assist.

    BTW the speaker you mentioned doesn't have its Thiele/Small parameters published. Without them it's practically useless. If you don't understand what I'm talking about, read the book ;)
