I use an excel program I created that uses the fomula for finding port length. I enter net volume wanted, tuning, sub displacement, and port area, and it spits out port length. From their, it's pencil and paper along with the program, Sketchup.

If I did this stuff for a living, I would consider paying for a program. I don't so I won't. For the money, you can't beat WinISD Pro for quickly modeling response, excursion and port velocity. As for the actual box design once you know volume and port length, pencil, paper and a calculator are the only way to fly.

you cant subtract sub displacement :fyi:

think about it.....you enter NET volume, thats AFTER sub and port. and if u dont take sub into account there..........you still dont subtract it later....you merely add it to the NET VOLUME, along side port displacement.

Sure your plans are right?

Yup, the sub goes in the box right? So you have to treat it just like you would the port displacement.

If you don't know how to design something by hand, it's my strong opinion that you shouldn't be using programs just yet since you don't know what it's doing.
