my box is 11 cuft and my external dimensions are...

53.25" wide
24" tall
18.25" deep

i will not be using a side wall as part of my port...it will be in the middle between the subs...can someone either give me a link to a calculator or just do it for me? thanks

edit: o and btw the subs will be inverted so they dont count in displacement...and i want it tuned to 35hz

edit: i just downloaded winISD and i get a port that is 5.51" x 5.51" x 2.23"......something seems wrong

edit: o i think i have figured it out...you have to put in your opening size and it will tell you how long the port needs to be

and are you seperateing the subs so they have their own chamber or airspace?

Your not using enough port area.
Using a kicker two 15" L7's as my model
I figure you should build a 10" x 10"
port that is 13.22" deep. The net
box displacement is right at 10.5 cubic
feet.

after i figured it out i got a port that is 22.5" tall, 4" wide, and 11.3" deep
would this work?

edit: same airspace

I ran your enclosure in bassbox pro 6 and the above port and the box in your first post would put you at 35.55hz with a port area of 90sqin. It would work well with your subs :D

You could do something like this and it will work:

That's right around 9 cubes tuned to 35hz with 135in^2 of port area. You will need bracing on that back wall though.
