the last box i built i used a website where u punch in some numbers and it would calculate the port and evn give u perfect dimensions on how to cut the wood.

i cant find the site anymore. it would give you a picture with each wall color coded, and perfect dimensions. im building someone a box and i cannot find it.

if anyone knows what im talking about plz post a link, or the next best thing if ya can, thanks.

Its the old subwoofertools calculator. They took down the old one that you used and are currently in the process of debugging it. Last time i checked it still is a little wacky.

EDIT: Whole site is down so its down completely. RE audio has one that will work just the same. Google "RE enclosure calculator."

There are plenty of designers on here if need be. ;)

Honestly, don't use one of those sites. Get a design from the top of the forum or contact a member for a design. Those places are ungodly inaccurate.

i used the subwooferstool calculator and the box sounded like complete ***. I confirmed that i put the correct parameters and built the box without any issues, but to find out that box sounded like complete *** for some apparent reason..... i will try RE calculator today

As I've said before, I've seen subwoofertools designs off by over 40%.

would you recommend a website that is accurate as possible for a calculator enclosure

Honestly, I would just look up basic enclosure designing theory and learn it. It isn't that difficult, and then when you compare your results to the online calculators, you'll be amazed. Noah has a tutorial posted at the top of this forum that might be of some use.
