This is a dumb question but which is the actual volume of the port if I was calculating it? Pic 1 or Pic 2?

And also when I am calculating the box size, does that include the port (total volume of the box) or without the port?

Kind of modified my existing box to get it tuned to ~38hz and trying to calculate exactly what it is at

Thanks

Subtract the volume of the port from the total volume of the box.

you measure down the middle of the port, not the outside or inside edges.... how wide is it?

and the answer to the first question is neither

i'm going completely blank on the term right now, but you add 1/2 of the width of the enclosure to the port length you have in picture 2

so the red line would be the actual port legnth right? that makes a lot more sense.

wow this is really difficult and confusing, lol. i bought a box from someone that advertised it as 2.5 cu. ft. @ 45hz, but after putting it in WINISD and getitng other opinions, it was more like 30.

the port used to be 2 1/4" x 13 1/2" x 31", but i took off the second wall so now it's 2 1/4" x 13 1/2" x 15". trying to see how much I should add on to get it right in the range I want. With what i have done to it i am getting like ~41 hz which is pretty close.

either way i want to change it to 37-38hz.

you mean 1/2 width of the port to it's length. (port correction factor) ;)
