In an attempt to build my first SW my primary concern is enclosure size, therefore many of the designs I have seen will not work in my application.
I will start with room size and it is approximately 17x19x9 with a 7x10 opening along the 19' wall into a similar sized room. This is a family room and not a dedicated theater or listening room.
As the SW's will be replacing end tables they will be camouflaged as such and would like them to be a down firing box. If this is not feasible or fraught with too much grief a forward firing design "may" be acceptable. (subject to WAF.)
Size options are approximately 23"hx21"wx33"d, external dimensions, or 19"h allowing for 4" legs in a down firing application. Construction will be either, 3/4" MDF or 18mm baltic birch plywood and will be covered in raised panel aka rail and stile.
The attributes of the SW that I am looking for are:

1. accuracy
2. LFE
3. SPL
4. cost

The questions:
1. Is sealed the best at meeting my requirements? If not, why not?

2. In a sealed application whose/what driver is best?

3. Is a eu2500 enough?

I look forward to your responses.
