View Full Version : does this make sense? (pics)

This is the first ported box i've designed and before I build it I want to make sure that it should in theory sound good. If(and that's a BIG if) my calculations are correct the box is 1.297 Cubic feet after port and driver displacment, and has a port length of 32.25 (2"x10") which should give me 33.93 HZ. The sub is a JL 10w6v2 powered by a JL 500/1. Any input would be very appreciated! **EDIT** sorry I didn't know the pics would be so small there are bigger pics with visible dimensions in the photo gallary of this site.

uh... good luck building it. Very difficult looking cuts.

I'm very comfortable with wood and am using my uncles shop(very experianced cabinet maker) so he could help worst come to worst but I doubt I need it. What I'm not sure about is my calculations or if the shape and setup will sound good. Again I'm sorry about the small pics but I have no idea how to make them bigger, If some one could tell me how that would be great. Thanks

good lookin design... what program do you use?
02-10-2007, 02:34 AM
I used Solidworks(excellent program but big $$$) which only does the modeling and for the calculations I used Winisd (but I don't know how to use it very well). I've been lurking and searching for quite a while now and from what I've learned this is what I came up with. If any one is curious this is going in a 1985 toyota pickup ext cab

Your length is actually 33.25 due to the end correction but it should not affect the tuning much at all.
Keep us posted on the build process.

ya srsly. If you can do it, then do it! it does look pretty good.

should be pretty easy to do.

should I be concerned with port noise or turbulance with this design???

thought I'd bring this back from the dead with a few pics. Overall I'm much happier with this box than any of the JL recomended boxes though it lacks a bit in the top end.
