Pencil, paper, and a calculator. Don't forget your brain:)

that would be easy but i need to kno how port length is affected after smaller internal volume..

Well that made no sense...

alright...if the port length is longer then the depth of ur box...then thats when u wrap the port around..forming an L shape or creating a maze look as in some boxes. am i correct?

alright...well you think u can help me out shrinkydinx?
all im doing is cutting the depth down about 5 or 6 inches and that is going to change the internal volume. and since ported tuning depends on internal volume i figured that would be affected. how do i modify the port to be tuned the same as before?

btw-RE designed my current box for my SE and it has a 2 to 3 inch section on the end of the port that forms an L shape..is that bad?

actually thats when you create a wormhole from one side of your box to the other - since its bad to bend ports.

HAHAHAHA :hilariou:

I left my flux capacitor in the other galaxy...

You would need to decrease port area if you were to decrease the port length. You can have a L shaped port. In most cases a Slot port will need an L shape to be able to have a large port area and low tunning.

By decreasing your port length, increasing your box volume will change tunning.

Use this site to get a basic idea on how you will be affecting your tunning.

yea ive used that calculator before and when i put in my figures i need a port length of 28". the depth of my box is only 15 so how exactly should i create the port wall?
from the hole go back and make an L that creates the length of 28". or should it go back and make a U shape or what?

If you are using a slot port measure from the dead center of the port and make an L shape in to the back of the box. Also you will want to account for the end correction if you are using a wall of your box as a wall of your port.

I will post up an PIC example in about 1 hour if you would like.

I love how people on these forums brag about pirating software. Very smart move.

ha..i was seeing how long it would take someone to say something about me bein stupid for usin that p2p ****. the govt is all over that ****. a friend of mine got busted for havin 500+ songs. he owes somethin like $100,000 over 25 years. u get so many viruses anyhow. besides limewire or kazaa versions of **** for some reason to me always seem messed up-at least kazaa. now that i think about it ill jus buy it. its worth it in the long run to have a good program cus im sure this isnt the only box ill be designing...

but on to what was being talked about...
did u ever find that pic

I don't know if that cal. works right it doesn't add up with what Orion has on they're site.
Orion H2 10.2: 0.6 cu.ft., 29 Hz, 3" dia. port = 32.6" for length
Cal.: 35.56" of length

That's when all of that math you learned in school kicks in, and you factor in the thickness of your port.;)

You talking about for an L shaped port right? Therefore, if it's straight I would need to take the Wight of my port off there port length.
