with a 10" sub you may want to go 1.5-1.75 cubic feet... The inside mass of the sub sitting in the box will take away about .25 of the box already

Don't use cheap plywood.

1" Birch plywood will result in a "deader" box but at 5x the cost of MDF.

Also with MDF, predrill your screw holes and countersink.

if you are not looking for a customized box, just get a premade one. I think Circuit City, Best Buy has them for around $75 if you're in a hurry. Otherwise, I got a nice one off eBay for $30 shipped. I used to make them myself also but now they sell for so cheap I rather just buy them.
