Interchangeable ports seem to be getting pretty popular on here. What are they tuned to?

Customer wanted SQ port @ 33hz and SPL port @ 42hz.

Yeah, interchangeable ports seem to be the new " boner " for subwoofer enclosure's, but, if the space of the design can allow for it, the person gets the best of both worlds without having to 2 separate enclosure's.

I've been designing and building swap ported enclosure long before they been popular here, it ain't a new concept.

How does the port stay in?

Usually threaded inserts. There was a thread floating around here about it. One of BJfishs' recent builds.

Knowing the quality of your work first hand, I imagine it'll be top notch when done. Post pics as it goes if you have time.

Quick thread jack: do you know how much power the customer is going to give the L7?

Ah. I always over engineer things. In my head I htought of a gasket around the port, and using some sort of wing nuts to clamp down on the port.

Just curious, thanks.

There are definitely a few ways of going about it, but lately the threaded inserts (as opposed to tee nuts) have been popular.

There are so many different hardware options available that could be used to secure the port module to the enclosure it not even funny.

T-nuts and threaded inserts are by far the most widely available to use for such mounting applications, but, if I wanted, I could make that you wouldn't even be able to see how the port module is held in place, however, such hardware to do it ain't cheap.
