I just need the equation for a port displacement.

L x W x H (slot port)

pi * radius(squared) * height (tube port)

No man for the port not the box

It's the same. Volume of a port is it's displacement in a box

Hypotetical: (totally off the wall numbers not representing a good box)

Box internal 32 X 17 X 15 = 8160 Cu In

The port inside is 2.5 X 17 X 20 = 850 Cu In (the amount of space it takes up in the enclosure or AKA DISPLACEMENT)(include thickness of inner wall when coming up with W btw)

I am talking about round ports,I am sorry I should mentioned that

I gave you that answer too man.

From first post:

pi * radius(squared) * height (tube port)

If you want to get really accurate you should include the port wall too (i.e. on a round port, do the OUTER diameter in the calculation).

If you're using MDF walls it can add sufficient volume and you'll need to do a separate calculation for the wall displacement over the port displacement.
