Is it even an enclosure design, or a sketchup design?

its not the enclosure design. i made it in sketchup so that people could get a visual of what i was asking. i just wanted to know if the difference in distance of the subs to the port would make a difference.

PV Audio has a point as to when someone creates a post about the " DESIGN " of an enclosure, the poster does not convey in one form or another the context of the post.

Therefore, it a matter of folks confusing the definition of " design " vs " enclosure design program " which anyone describing as such " an enclosure design " can lead one to assume the latter, rather than the former.

In that context, I have to side with PV Audio that someone folks do as such confuse one with the other and they should define their posts as such.

Your opinion that sketchup isnt for designing enclosures.
Design=VISUAL...How the hell is it my opinion that a program that recently came out and is made to draw housing and architecture is necessary when people have been designing enclosures since before computers were even thought of? It isn't necessary, and if you can't design one without it, you quite frankly have no business using it as you don't understand its benefits. Harsh, blunt, frank, arrogant, elitist, whatever you might want to call that or me, but it's complete fact: learn to design a box using a calculator and a piece of paper before you think that a 3D CAD program is even part of the process. It isn't even necessary.
