Default Compartment clearance on a table

Still working on my router table and have a question on the router compartment size. What is the minimum clearance around the router. Specifically the bottom of the compartment to the top of the router. Needless to say I made an uh-oh in one of the dado cuts and the end result is the compartment is now only 12 inches or so from the bottom of the compartment to where the plate will be. I really wanted to get the 7518 that was for sale in S&S but was concerned I didn't have enough clearance for proper air flow ect... between the bottom of the compartment and top of the router. Do I need to even worry about that as long as the router doesn't bottom out?

Ignore the S&S part, it was a copy and paste.

Hi

Not to sure what the S & S is but if the router will fit in the hole without hitting the bottom you should just fine.. just don't make it air tight..
