View Full Version : Need some advice on vented enclosure for Premier TS-W3001

Hello everyone, I have a Premier TS-W3001D2 sub I'm going to build a vented enclosure for. Using BassBox 6 Pro, I planned on building a 2.225 ft^3 box tuned to 33hz. I've got the flared port from partsexpress that is 4" in diameter. Bassbox says the port length should be 11.26 in. WinISD says 10.90 in, the calculator at caraudioforum.com says 11.02, and carstereo.com says 11.05. So what is the correct length? Also, the port came with instructions with a length formula and says the precision port should be 1" longer than Lv when assembled. So what do I go on?

Also, if this box doesn't seem logical to you guys, maybe some suggestions? T/S parameters are:

0.56 QTS
0.58 Qes
15.68 Qms
32.1 Fs
0.320 ft^3 VAS
67.8 Sd sq inches
24.83 BL (T.m measurement)
0.48 Xmax inches

Speaker holds 1000 watts RMS and is a dual 2ohm voice coil speaker. Appreciate any help!

Man i dont know either I just ordered 4 of the 2ohm sub like urs and
if you go by the manual it says To make a ported box you need like 1.6cubic ft max
and the port should be round 3in ID x 2 1/2 and that dont sound right to me
so I called pionner customer service and they assured me that the port dimensions were
right ... So i dont know what you have in mind but you might want to down load the
manual off of the web sight and see what you thank.

Yeah, it came with the manual, but that doesn't seem right to me. Most everyone else says the same, seems too small.

Just plugged in the numbers on bassbox6 pro, it says that it's tuned to 48hz, too high for what i'm looking for.

I do know. The way the sub is built has allot to do with it
under the foam surround is another surround kinda like a air pocket, And from what
the tech guy said from pioneer was that the extra surround made
it where you didn't have to build the box as big or the ports
If you look at like a church sound system the house speakers
have the same round port on each side of the 12in or 15in subwoofer

Whenever my subs come in im gona try to build it like the manual says
I just got done ordering round ports off ebay They weren't that bad of a
price. I thank I only payed 11.53$ for 4- 3in x 4in ports. Ill have to cut them down but
thats ok. What ever you do dont order them from crutchfield they were gona be
like 35$$ there for the same thing...
