View Full Version : slanted slot port help

07-08-2008, 06:23 PM
im in the process of designing my next enclosure and im having a bit of trouble. the baffle is going to be slanted (wedge enclosure) and the port opening is going to be on the baffle as well. how would i go about keeping the dimensions of the port consistent throughout the port? wouldnt i just angle the back of the port (inside of enclosure) at the same angle as that on the baffle? i can make a quick sketch if needed. thanks

just a quick sketch for any of those visual-type people.

obviously, the image is nowhere near to scale, its just a visual reference.

also, i cannot put the port on the top or bottom, so please dont suggest that. anything else just ask.

put the port on the side of the box.....or on the vertical panel at the bottom of the baffle (unless thats what you meant by no port on the bottom)

yea, thats what i meant. from the design im thinking about, the only place i could put it is on the baffle (unable to put it on sides, top, or verticle front). is there any way to do this or should i re-think my design?

If you can get the length you need then you are fine, Otherwise you might have to go with some aero ports if the port is long enough to have a bend in it. Having port on same face as subwoofer puts port in phase with woofer, which is a good way to do it, what kind of car is thsi goin in?

EDIT: maybe not done yet.... you said that putting the port in phase with the sub is a good thing. is it bad if i have the subs on the angled baffle and put the slot port on the top horizontal section?

ok, my second idea was wrong and im back to the drawing board, needing help with the port on the slanted baffle. not mentioned before was the fact that the port will have to make an L-bend as well. any ideas?
