Well since my first build for the l7s screwed me over by an inch after 2 remodels on the same box im starting over. i am doing 2 seperate boxes for my 15in l7's.

After sub displacement it is 4.41 cubic ft. each. now i want to tune to anywhere between 30-34 most likely 30 because i want to be heard coming from a long ways heh. But can someone help me figure out a port design? either slot or tube.

thats the design of the box. i was hoping to have the port towards the back so it shoots up vertically into where i removed my 6x9's.

internally its 16.25in. in height
16.50in. in width
29.50in. depth

any help would be appriciated i know theres calculators out there but id rather get some expert help off here if im doing anything wrong lol

well im looking for whatever sounds better inside the car. so would going around 34hz do it for me?

30hz is fine man...but I would tune a tad higher...maybe 33-34. Just because music doesnt often dip below 33hz. and you will gain a little output with a higher tuning frequency.

alright thnx, now my only problem is how to do the port. if i dont have enough room to face the port vertically can i just port it on the back of the box towards the back seat?
