I'll see what I can do what tuning freq?
It looks like you can get 34Hz @ 6 cu/ft, hows that?

sounds good my man...if 6 cubes is not possible with that depth im gonna see if i can stretch out a few more inches...
02-06-2007, 08:27 PM
with your current Max dimension you can get
84 sq/in of port @ 6 cu/ft @ 33.5 Hz

Ever play with legos? It's like that.

i know i just didnt know how to do it...looks like i should start with the bottom...attach the sides.....do the double baffle top and front with the port attached....then attach that to the sides

It depends on the box for me.But personally I lay the bottom down, do the back, sides, front baffle, then port (if it attaches to the front baffle) and so on and I end with the top.
Just look at the design and you can get it.

but to do the back you gotta screw in through the bottom right?

i always do exactly what mountaineer man said; and you don't have to screw; i'd invest in some good clamps.
or, if you don't have clamps, do what i used to do. put the bottom board on a table with the back lip hanging over by a 3 inches or so. glue the back piece and set it where it's going. with the help of a friend/relative/whoever, screw it in. sit down and screw up, while your friend pushes down on the board and keeps it lined up. put a brick/weight on the front lip of the board, to help weight distribution.

well i started building but how high to i mount the port piece....at what inch mark...sorry stupid question but im stuck...let me know ASAP
02-10-2007, 03:40 PM
the width of the port
02-10-2007, 03:42 PM
so make the port as high as whatever the L x W comes out to be the square inches of port desired>
02-10-2007, 03:43 PM
no, the "bottom" edge of the port in your design that i seen will be (W) high from the bottom of the box

how you build really depends on the design...
I did one similar HERE (http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=206387)
BTW, I would have gave you a 3d build sheet if I designed it, typically by request;)
