I would use something better than that program...
I would read this site http://www.diysubwoofers.org/
and then use something like WinISD or AjDesigner

I would avoid inverting the subs if you can in a vented box, especially with your first box.

Why do you say that??? You won't damage them. Inverting normally causes some loss in SPL and a little better cooling but thats about it.

This calculator is not accurate. I would suggest using winisd or doing the math by hand. Those are the only 2 ways to properly calculate a ported enclosure..

Exactly, a loss in some cases in SPL, but in my experience the subwoofer gave off some residual noise when I inverted them, but then again the sub was right next to me, I should have elaborated.

That caculator is not accurate? Win Isd shows it as matching the same port lenght (w/same height and width)

Perhaps you can help me out...

i have learned not to trust anything but pencil, paper and a calculator. online calculators seem to be off form one another and even winisd doesn't get all the time.
