how do you make it so that you can put it on your photobucket album? I can think up ideas in my head, put it down on sketchup, and build it... but I have no idea how to operate my friggin computer... any help? I would like to learn how to transfer it into a useable file format so that I can upload it into here or my photobucket album... after I get help, I would like to post a new design that I am going to build... it is going to have a chrome laminate bottom layed up over 1" MDF, with a 1" Plexi Top.

I took screenshots (control printscreen on the keyboard) pasted it into a new paint file, cropped out the crap and then saved it like that.

I'll do more after work tonight... got a dead line and have to cut over 400 sheets of Corean... (how ever you spell it) suggestions on design? Haven't determined the volume/ tuning freq. yet... can tweak later just a brain storm... I was thinking stainless steel would be better then chrome on teh floor of the enclosure... the rest will be black.

The end of the ports (interior) is a little odd..... if you have the curved pieces and the "L" shaped pieces your port will not have a constant cross-sectional area. Could cause some tuning issues.

Couldn't you just loose that whole middle piece all together, the white one. I don't know if I am looking at this right but it seems like that is just messing everything up.

Either that, or straighten it out, and bring it all the way to thr front.

I could surely do that... it just looked plain jane so I tossed it in... I could extend it to the front, or remove it completely... I have never done one like it and I have seen them done before so I wanted to experiment a little.

Yeah, you either need to get rid of it, or divide them. If you so choose to divide them, then you need to make the back an actual "L" shape instead of that curve. You can put make your corners round with resin or whatever you want, but I wouldn't do it like you have it now... If you so choose to get rid of it, you will have to narrow up that port .75, or be prepared for tuning to be a tad higher, either way somthings gotta change.. ;) :up2somet:

saywhat?

if u get rid of it, your tuning will be off. thats air going from say a 4 inch area, dumping into an 8 inch wide area....double the port are on the middle section, than what is in the back wall port.


it still seems as though its two different sections of the box, just fuxored tuning.
