I'm pretty much a noob at box building, just asking for a little help.

Tomorrow I'm finishing my sealed HT box for my ava but I have a bunch of spare mdf sitting here because of the bad cuts that home depot and lowes made. I decided I can just cut up the scraps and build a small 12" ported box.

I messed around with the RE enclosure calculator and came up with this box. Can anyone tell me if this will be fine?

I'm aiming for ~2.0 ft^3 @ 32hz. I plan on just making a practice box for a type r or something that also goes well in this box size/tuning.

If this is off, I'll just use one of the free box plans in the sticky.

Thanks.

Haha, my bad I didn't realize the thumbnail would be that small. I'll upload it somewhere.

I'd give it 30-36 square inches of port. 25 seems too small

What kind of audible difference would there be?

I'm new to the whole audio thing, is there any other calculators accept for an L-ported box?

I plan to build a box to tuck two RE SE 10's under the backseat of my f-150. I need to know measurements.

i have bult many boxes using this calculator and i have a term and i have put all these boxes on the term and all was tuned to what i was looking for or what i was building the box to be tuned too,

and for the f 150 i would say you have to measure your space under your seats and get with someone for that cause your goning to need a sub that is able to work well in a small enclosure, just to name a few i know i hate to say but kicker works well lol, pioneer, rd audio, and i think mtx works pretty good too. i have one rd audio 15 right now in an 2.5 cube box sealed and i was doing 140 yesterday so its all in how you build your boxes too good luck bro's hope this helps

I used the RE calc for my 15" SX and it seems to work fine. I tuned a little lower (31 hz), but, other than that...no problems.
