Box design is for a 86 Monte Carlo SS. This was my first EVER design using sketchup, so not too much is to scale (main thing is the box is not that wide).

Box is 2.15 cubes net w/ 29.5 in^2 of port area; tuned to 31.5 Hz. Only question, is will that wedged-shaped portion on the rear of the box matter much, as far as airflow goes. You can see in the 3rd picture I'll have a 45 there to kind of round off that joint.

I really need that space to achieve the proper volume, and that design is getting the most from the box.

Input please!

Theres nothin wrong with that design that I see. Being that it looks to be a daily driver design, dont worry too much about airflow inside of the enclosure.

Very nice, but SketchUp draws everything to scale...that is if you put in measurements.

yea, it's a DD setup; 12" ava off of 400w rms.

back wedge is just to maximize airspace with the layout of the trunk. i'll have the amp in a false floor in front of the box.

what do you mean by putting in the measurements, pv? or rather, where would i do that?

very nice design there!
wut is the port lentgh for each port to make it @31.5hz?

When you're using the line tool, as you're drawing the line (the line has to be active), just type in the length you want (automatically inches).
