If any of you guys are interested in a box design let me know. I enjoy messin around with the 3D Sketch programs. Just let me know what kinda dimensions you want and if you want a ported or sealed enclosure. I haven't did anything complex yet, but I will try anything.
Here is one I did earlier for myself...

About to build a slot port for my friend's 15", haven't finalized the design yet. Maybe you want to mess around with this one:

Height = 15" Maximum
Width = 34.5" Maximum
Depth = 17" Variable, probably end up around 17"

Shooting for 3 cubes after vent and sub displacement (0.16 cu ft), maybe 34hz tuning.

Ok box designed lemme know if you like it. Took about less then 2 hours. I was bored =p. I have the *.SKP file to send you if you want it. Just need an e-mail where it can be sent. :smokin:

Rofl I almost forgot to see if your sub would fit lol. Mounting dep is 6 1/2". I just check and you will have 1/16" between port on bottom and speaker magnet. Sweet it will fit.

That's not sufficient clearance :fyi:

well if it didnt have a pole vent it wouldnt matter...

would it?

Thanks for the effort Rcnshoe but that exceeds the width. Have to stick too:

Height = 15" fixed
Width = 34.5" Fixed
Depth = 17" Variable, probably end up around 17"

It's a 15" sub too.

What direction for the sub is best in a trunk car where the seats don't fold down?

he'd better hope there is no pole vent lol

edit: whoops, someone already said it.

um... what exactly do you think the airspace and tuning of this box is?

He's looking for 3cf @ 34Hz, I hope you weren't shooting for those numbers...

That should help me from here on out. I was wonderin how to do slot ports. I was using the dimensions given for a round port for a slot port. I knew it didn't look right, but now I realize that was because it wasn't right. Oh well. That's one way to learn.

You've heard me say it before, so I don't have to preach to you Ion (obviously :laugh: ), but 3D design =/= enclosure design. Why won't people learn this? :confused:

I'm just havin fun with the program. I may be wrong with the enclosure characteristics, but I'm still learning. Could one of you guys tell me the airspace of this box and what it is tuned to? I tried to get it how I wanted it, but I don't know exactly how to determine.

about 3.25cf net tuned to ~29Hz, but the port area is abysmal.

Like PV said, do not try to design in Sketchup, you will fail. All Sketchup is is a "make it into a pretty picture" program.

I took Ion's advice and actually designed the box before I even opened SketchUp. I used SketchUp this time simply because if it is correct, it will help me by providing a bluepring when I build it since it will be the first box I have built. It should be 2CuFt at 32Hz. I don't know alot about the ports and sometimes using WinISD it will give me a length that is longer than the dimension I want to use it with. Is that when you go around the corner with it? Anyways, here is the one I just did that I hope is correct.

Thanks for the help so far. I'm tryin to get the hang of it.

That port area is too small for anything but my ****.

That's not a port... that's a leak lol

Put a dab of silicone on it and you'd be good to go!

Any why do you even bother with a refs list haha
