nice.. I have tried to cut the face with a 3/4 edge like that for the port but it is usually not straight. I did you do yours>

The Drivers front pannel is flush to the sidewall of the port. It looks like you cutt out the port opening, leaving only 3/4" of wood on 3 sides. I have done this before but it was hard to keep the cuts straight and still keep the 3/4" gap.

Just stating that it looks nice and wonding if it was difficult.

thats not the whole port opening, just like a hole there. he will use a flush trime to get it perfect.

hey, nice looking boxes man!! question for you on the rounding of the port edges, does this effect the flow of air? Im guessing yes but not sure, most of the boxes Ive seen and or built always have the 90 degree edges on them, also would it be beneficial to round the outside edges of the port as well? where it comes through the front of the box? thanks for your help and pics---Dinty

PV Audio
01-16-2007, 10:44 PM
Scales??? :eyebrow:
Fish...scales...ya kno...guess not :(

And my technique is similar to his, except that I don't have a router table and hate using rabbet bits free hand, so why I do is put my saw fence like as close to the blade as possible without hitting it, set the depth to like 1/8 or 1/4 (eyeball it), and run each side along the fence so that it "rabbets" the sides. The only problem with this is when you have a ported box, you either have to use a .75 x height stick on the port side so that you can still tuck in the carpet, or, you can do what they do and run your straight bit 3/4" from the edge.

Rounding the port doesn't make much difference, but neither does waxing your car every 2 days, but I do it anyway. :)

ok, just curious, as I dont see too many boxes with rounded ports, but I figured if there was a big difference in sound a lot of people would be doing it ;) Not saying I gauge my builds by what the current trend is but its just an observation


Yea lemme know how it turns out, I always wanted to take my max's and make 2 boxes, one with right angle edges and one with rounded edges to see if there was a difference, maybe not in dB per say, but just in the overall sound

PV Audio
01-16-2007, 11:35 PM
What do you mean ummmmm lol. Unless you're building a labyrinth style port, it won't give you sound improvement to the ear, unless you've got next to no port area, in which case a .5" roundover isn't going to help. I'm not hating lol, I do it myself, but it's not like someone's going to know the difference unless you tell them.

i believe the only difference it would make is that it will lower the chances of port noise.
since adding a 90* bend to a square port adds turbulence, then rounding the inside edge of the port and adding the 45* to the outside corner will decrease some of the port noise created by the bend by making the air flow easier.

dinty01
01-16-2007, 11:47 PM
yea I think it looks nice too, just wasnt sure if there was a reason to do it/not do it, i guess it doesnt matter, maybe Ill try it on my next box

Yea, thanks, I wasnt sure how to word it but thats what I was thinking, just not sure what to call it, if the air flows better over a surface there is less resistance, less resistance means (in theory) better flowing air, much like the dynamics of the exterior of a car, the more aerodynamic the car is the better it will move through the air, thats why I thought these guys were doing it, now Ill definitely try it

I guarantee you that you won't be amazed by any difference it makes :)

If you really want to see a difference, then you should go with a flared port...but then you start getting horn characteristics and then it just goes to hell in a bucket of chicken.
