I agree with Jaycar's design except I specify larger ports

Jaycar design will be too noisy for Home Theatre environment
Port flares would be required
 

The design I have presented here has been built - see the Snorky page
For a dual driver setup using this driver see the Blast Furnace

Port Flares

Calculated with Flare-it
I would recommend 15mm flares. If you have a full size router, you can use a 19mm rollover bit for routed flares. If you have a small router, you could probably get away with 13mm flares.
Alternatively, you could move to heat molded flares in 20mm or 25mm radius.
The intake could be flange mounted with a 13mm routed flare or you could fit a donut ring. If you are using a heat molded flare, you could do a one-piece design with a 20mm flare on the inlet
See the Porting section for design, construction and purchasing of flared ports.
