By the way I realized that tighteness of sound box is not that critical for the quality of sound so when I closed everything I did not use any silicone or other sealant. Only in the power pass-thru holes.
Good job and I am glad you sealed the pass through holes or you would have sound quality issues and the woofer would be flopping around like a fish out of water. Just taking one of the four screws out that holds the woofer down can casue the woofer to have sound and suspension issues from the hole (from the air leak, not woofer being loose, even with three screws the woofer is held snug do to a gasket that is glued to the speaker basket. You can hear the speaker bottom out and the bass is not as tight just from the 1/8" hole. You do need to seal the flower out of the enclosure when you put it back together; you may have gotten lucky and the black sealant may have made a pseudo gasket when you you pulled it apart. I have even seen sound quaity issues from not resealing the portion of the port where the two portions meet in the inside (the port starts on the inside of the front pannel and then goes toteh iside of the read pannel and then out the side. There the two mate together is what I am talking about.
Some people just use a 12v supply for the whole thign and then you loose about 25% of your volume, you make a good choice going with a 19v and a 9.5 (I guess 8.8v in your case).
Dr. Godehard Guenther from Soundmatters (and founder of A/D/S ) and Roku put a lot of work and thought into the sound quaility and for a woofer that small, it really sounds amazing (better the an Acoustic Wave IMHO) and it also another reason when sealing it up is so important. same goes for the left and right satellite speaker assemblies, they are pretty incrediable too (ported as well).
Once agian, good job and regards, Matt
