    Almost finished with my first Tempest enclosure. My amp arrives today and my driver Wed. I've got a few last minute questions for the DIY vets, though.

    1) For a double layered bottom panel to mount the driver in, what size circles (inner and outer) should the mdf be cut to?

    2) 11 inch center tubes for the ports on the 214L Adire Alignment Tempest, right?

    3) Do I need to use weather stripping (or caulk?) around the driver and ports when they are mounted?

    4) 12G speaker wire to connect amp to Tempest, right?

    Thats all I can think of right now, but I may have more later. [​IMG] TIA for the help.

    I can answer a couple:

    3: I used "rope" caulking when mounting the driver.

    4: Used HD 12 guage wire for internal wiring of sub and wiring to amp.
