If i build an enclosure for 3 subs and use dividers with large holes in them, will it be the same as the subs sharing airspace....im building a fiberglass enclosure and i will be using the dividers for shaping the contours....

also, would that have an effect on tuning?



and

does the port direction matter?


thanks

if the dividers truly allow air to pass very freely between each chamber then yes its basically the same as being in a single space, tuning will pretty much only be affected by the difference in total volume due to the displacement of the dividers, and yes port direction matters

thanks for the answer to all i asked!...


so which port direction is best for a wedge-shaped enclosure?


(front, back, or top)...these will be round ports

Anywhere, just make sure its firing to where you want it to fire. In a trunk prob towards the cabin. In a hatchback, towards the back. Not sure on a truck

Unless its a big enclosure that will fill up most of the back, it shouldn't matter a whole lot in that vehicle. You aren't trying to get every last 10th on the meter or you wouldn't be doing fiberglass, so whatever works for your design should be fine.
