Hey guys,

Im built a ported box for two JL10W5-D4 subs.
The specs on the speaker are:
Fs: 31.7Hz
Qts: 0.384
Qes: 0.402
Vas: 1.60 ^3
Xmax: 0.295

The box im building is 18*14*14 per chamber
IM using a Punch 800.2 to push them with about 200W to each.
The port dimensions it calls for are 3x10.75.
This port length seems kind of short to me for a 30-40hz tuned box?

Am i wrong here? What should the port dimensions be for a round port?
The box is already built so it dont have much room to play with for the length of the port.

Thanks,

Tman

Are the 18 x 14 x 14 dimensions internal?
How many ports do you have?
What tuning freq are you looking for?

The dimensions are external with one port per chamber.
Im not looking for SPL, im more into SQ cause its for daily driving.

Thanks,

Assuming 3/4" MDF you have a 1.5cu' box

According to WinISD, 1.5cu' box with a 3" diameter port tuned to 35Hz would be 8" long. If it was 10.75" long it would be tuned to 31Hz.

Yes it is 3/4 MDF. I guess i should go with the 35Hz huh? that sounds like a nice round number.


Thanks for the info guys!

If you're more into SQ you might go with the 31Hz tuning freq.
