Well I finished up my project. I went ahead with the 3cuft design, though nothing fancy with the enclosures (which was good, this being my first time working on a cabinet this large). I definitely learned to cut the pieces larger than needed so I could let the router do the work, although a little too late. In spite of everything I think they came out nicely, and even if they're not the prettiest, they still sound pretty impressive, especially in my small space.
I won't have a chance to do any finishing (in terms of stain/paint) for a while, but I've started to consider my options. I'm thinking of having a painted front baffle, and staining the rest. For that kind of finish, which do you think I should start with? Should I paint first, then tape it off to stain, or stain and tape that off to paint?
I'll post up some REW plots when I get a chance. Hopefully it'll look alright, although if it doesn't there's not much I can do outside of EQ since they're placed in the only possible positions due to space constraints.
Anyway, below are a few pictures of the subs as they stand, and the kind of finish I'd like to go for.
