Default Could someone check my design before I build it?

basically, this is my first ported box and I was looking to get
~1.5ft^[email protected]
I used the outer dimensions WxDxH of 18x14x14
I think I have everything right but I would be very thankful if someone would be willing to look over the file that I made in Google sketch-up.

The only problem is I have no clue how I would upload it, is emailing it to someone for help just the best idea?

I'd just build it if I were you. Experimenting with enclosure dimensions is the best way to find the best box for your car/sub/app. Generally for a 10" sub, you are in the ballpark.

My biggest concern is if I designed my port right in sketch-up haha. When you go around the 90 degree corner with an L slot port you count that corner as 3.14"?

This.

Not everyone can do it or even wants to, but I just f'n guess, build, test, tweak, test. Rebuild, test, tweak... and so on.

I guess it won't matter much since I am planning on upgrading to a Sundown Sa-12 in about 3 months. Might as well just do it and hope it sounds good haha. I actually do like the idea of building and testing and tweaking, rinse and repeat. But I only have a summer job and I am kinda cheap haha. most of my tax returns are going to glassing my doors and my center console build so this is just one more thing to add.
