View Full Version : New Box Help

I used these plans for my Brahma. I started making the box and I cut the top peice @ 32" where it didnt cover the port becuase I wasnt sure if i should cut it short and not cover the port or just cut a rectangle in the wood to cover the port. And I cut it @ 32". So The top peice with the sub and port is on top of the wood.So therefor the sub sits higher than the port not flush.So should I cut a peice than fits in nice and snug over the port or will the .75 of a inch make a huge difference in tuning.I have only small scraps after a 4x8 sheet so if i have to cut the whole top again i will ahve to buy a new piece. can i just cut the lil piece out from scrap and be ok? here is box plans for better explanaion.

Thick black line is the peice I cut, the thin black line is where its 3/4 of a inch shorter, and i need to cut a peice to fit if that will help. here are the rest of the plans for kicks.

as long as the port is covered on top, that 3/4 in. extension shouldnt make an audible effect on the tuning.

For asthetics, cut out the 3/4" pieces. For Sound only leave it alone. It will only effect tunning about .05hz anyways.

If you plan to cover it and show it off, you may want to add those pieces on the port to level things out.
