I'm sorry if that was a stupid request...I was just looking for a rough estimate...a ballpark design...I'm old I misread the help part on the forum name.

I was just letting you know that there is no general design...you can make just about anything, but without specs on the driver it is a shot in the dark......I could throw out numbers all day and none of them would mean a thing.

A prefab from one place would be one size with some tuning, and a prefab from another store would be something completely different.

I'm sorry I wasn't trying to say you were not helpful....I just don't know the specs...It's just Kenwood 10" sub with a large raised DB+ in the center...I want to make a box for it for my Grandson...I'm good at woodworking just not car audio....sorry if I came across as an old fart.....even though I am

would you happen to have a picture of the sub and/or any model numbers on the magnet?

you are not wasting my time....I could be in the lounge and not helping anyone with anything! This is me being helpful and attempting to assist you in being a hero:p:

with a picture I may be able to track down some numbers and then to the best of my abilities be able to maximize the potential of your project

To make it easy for you (if you don't know how to design slot ports) you can just build a 1 cubic foot box and put a 3" PVC pipe 11" long in the box. That will give you 38 hz tuning.

40 seems high to me as well....I personally have 10's ported @ 24hz, but that is crazy to most people and on the other end of the spectrum:p:
