noob question

i am planning on putting the ports on the opposite side of the box from the subs (2 3" round ports), so the question is: if the ports are pretty much pointing at the back of the sub is there going to be any cancellation problems or anything?

What's the specs on that box?

Looks great, specially for a first box.

its right about at 3 cu ft before displacement of everything, so with displacement probably around 2.5 - 2.3

tuned to 35 hz

I think you took to much out for displacement.. Unless there is a lot of bracing.

mrbomb

no your probably right its prob more around 2.7 or so
