I'm already on the final stages...

2 cubes @ 40hz (hopefully)... the port width from the rear of the box to the port wall is gonna be shorter than the port wall to the side of the box by 1/8" >_< ***** because I only noticed it after I glued it on. But whatever... I learned my lesson. I just need to figure out the remaining length of the port wall (plus end correction), glue it in, glue the top on and I'm done. If the end result doesn't fall apart, at least, I'll be satisfied.

One question I have though before I continue on... if the port bends 90 degrees after passing a corner of the box and then ends, would my end correction be .425 + .425 + .307, assuming 2 flanged ends and 1 free end, or should I just assume a total of .732?

Doesn't look bad for a first build.

looks great. I built my first box today... im bedlining it tomorrow tehn i'll post pics of the build.
How long does it take everyone to build their boxes? It took me a good 5 hours to cut the wood ( wouldve been about 2-3 if i wasnt so **** about my cuts being straight) then about 6 hours to put the box together.

it takes me just a few hours to cut the wood, so long as my all my measurements are triple-checked. Then it takes me days to finish putting the box together. I know some may laugh but hey, I take my time and check my progress as I go along. The end result then, I think, feels much more like an accomplishment.

Of course I just think it's because I'm still mediocre at it :)

2nd build, actually... my first box was a small sealed box.

BTW, can anyone help me out with the proper end correction I should add to this box's port?

Is there going to be another port wall? I'll post a picture of how to calculate end correction with one end being a wall.

That is how you measure the end correction. Measure down the middle like always, then add half the width of the port to the line length you have.

The left port has a length of 19.75" and the right port has a length of 16".

Ahh I see. Thanks man! I'm gonna start cutting the port and glueing it in.

:( I poked a hole in the surround of one of my 8's... anyway, updated pics will be up on Friday of the completed box. Will let everyone know how it sounds!
