Hi,
I built a speaker enclosure quite a few years ago. My advice is to get a book about designing speakers. There’s a lot of different types that give different results, (ie.) bass reflex etc. I looked up on Amazon & they have a lot of books on this subject.
For example,
http://www.amazon.com/Designing-Building-Testing-Speaker-Projects/dp/007069429X/sr=1-1/qid=1159534597/ref=sr_1_1/102-1464936-5061749?ie=UTF8&s=books

Hi Buli,

I’ll assume the volume you are talking about is the cubic inches contained inside the speaker enclosure. That is truly the key element for the bass speaker in particular, and that measurement can be found on the spec sheet of any speaker you buy. be sure to factor in the speaker displacement when you calculate the interior cubic inches.

Beyond that, the 3 way speaker system needs a crossover to direct the correct sounds to the correct speakers. An adjustable crossover gives the most potential to tune the speaker cabinets to a nice full range response and sound.

Chipboard is fine, but a dense form of particleboard would be better. The question would be, where are you using these speakers? If in the house, you’ll probably want a better look, so any 3/4” harwood veneer plywood that you like would be perfect.

Thanks Teach, I’ve found some information and build 3way speakers http://lumberjocks.com/projects/145 . I used 3way crossover and bassreflex enclosure. I didn’t count the volume of enclosure but i think i made it well because the sound is great.

Hey Buli,
Good for you! And that is the bottom line, if it sounds good to you – success!
