How do you seal the enclosure?
I see one panel, presumably the front, with 10-12 screws holding it on that should be enough to seal it tightly but the other side has only 4 corner screws. How is that going to seal the enclosure with a 12" high powered woofer pounding against it? Can the rear of the enclosure be permanently glued to seal it up?
As a DYIer - the options are up to you. Except for the front and back - I would use wood glue on all pieces. You can use very thin foam tape - the kind that is used for insulation sealing on the front and back - but you are right - they do fit very tight. I would not glue the front or back if you plan to make driver or amp changes. Also - use the weather stripping under the perimeter of the 12" sub. http://www.parts-express.com/cat/gasketing-tape-caulk/318 is a great page for your needs.

How durable is the finish
I habe bought your cabinets in cherry before. I was wondering if the black finish is as durable as the wood ggrained finishe?
The Cherry has a grain and pattern to it - so it's forgiving to nicks etc. The black is really well done, but you will see nicks or dents if you should cause them. But if you are having success with the Cherry cabinets - then the black should be good for you. When I first saw your question - I wondered if you were in a band or doing DJ'ing - then the answer would have been a big no LOL
