23.8 is what I get. Is this 9 cubes NET or gross. Internal or external? These things will make a large difference.

Ok, do this: Tell me the exterior dimensions of the enclosure. Don't link me to those **** calculators. I hate all of those things and don't trust them for ****.

:fyi: to change port area, just change Xmax :fyi:

Question: Are you going to use the height as a port opening? If so, it will only be 15.5" and not 16.

As far as dimensions, I used a port of 16x7.5 and a length of 23.75" and that gives a tuning of about 33.3hz and an enclosure net volume of ~8.8 cubes after sub displacement.

Box volume in inches using 3/4" wood (H= exterior height; W= exterior width; D= exterior depth):
(H-1.5)(W-1.5)(D-1.5)/12^3

I use Winisd Alpha to calculate port length.

If you use three walls of the enclosure for your port, this is how I get port volume (Ph= interior port height; Pw= interior port width; Pl= interior port length):
(Ph)(Pw+.75)(Pl)/12^3

The +.75 acounts for the width of the wood used to make the port.

Subtracting these two will give you the net volume in the enclosure. After that, I take away about .05 cubic feet per sub but this varies.

My 12" sub takes up .09 cu ft and it's a TC-1000 just to give some reference.

Yea, it varies but it's not a huge difference at all. For instance, I own a 12" av12 and John said the displacement is .06 ft^3. The av12 is very similar to the TC-1000 in size.
