I am making a ported fiberglass box, and I wanted to know how I go about doing the port, when I dont know the exact internal volume until the box is made???

Any ideas anyone??

its quite complex and you will need to determine the volume b4 you build, if your doing a basic 2 side mdf and the rest glass, you will need to use the 2/3 rule which is how much volume you have inside compared to if that box was fully mdf, the fiberglass box would only be 2/3 the actual volume over mdf

or you could build the box, find the volume, then use areo ports cut to the desired length for the ports

I like the second option ;)

Its impossible to find out the volume before its built... its quite odd shaped, so I cant chance it...

Ill have to invest in some aero ports.

Best Place to Buy Aeroports?

i'm doing the same thing right now, i've almost got my box built, then i'm going to add one of their precision ports.

also when finding your port length, for precision ports use this calculator (http://www.psp-inc.com/psp-inc.com/public_html/..%5Ccgi-bin%5Cport_length_calculator.cgi)
