View Full Version : Does this seem right?

The box I am designing for my old Tempest is a slot-loaded design. I changed the size of the slot per suggestions in my other thread. The slot is now 2.5" X 14.5".

The volume I designed the box for was 2.5 cubic feet. My design is 36"W X 16"H X 15"D. The total volume of that is 3.91 cubic feet. My port is 46" long, so the volume of that port is 0.973 cubic feet. The internal divider has a volume of 0.290 cubic feet. The woofer I figured at 0.070 cubic feet.

If I take the total volume - (port volume) - (divider volume) - (woofer volume) = design volume. With the numbers above I came up with 2.577, close to my target of 2.50. Does it seem like I figured this correctly? Or am I a total noob and have made drastic errors? Thanks for any input.

Im guessing the internal divider is the port wall? If so, it sounds like its pretty close to 2.5 cubes to me.
