I went here http://www.carstereo.com/help/Articles.cfm?id=31 to see what size round port to use and my ?? is do these calculations include the round port's displacment?? I guess they would have to right
:confused:

know they dont just use it to determine what you would need for you size box then fiqure what the displacement would be and renter that volume into the calculator after a couple times it should get you really cloose

i don't think it does... gave me the same dims as psp-inc's calc

I followed it exactly on a slot ported 12'' box, it was right on the money. Just make sure you put accurate info in when you find the minimum port size(i.e. x-max calculator).

Well how do you figure out the displacement of a round port??
It is calling for 10.59in long X 6in round @ (8.8cubic ft before port displacement)

3.14 x 9 x 10.59 = 299.27
299.27 / 1728 = .17cu/ft

This is How I figured it

With this formula, Pi x R^2 x D/1728 (3.14 x Radius x Radius x Depth of Port/1728)

Im using a 6" round pvc with a radius of 3.31 port that is 10.59" long

3.14 x 3.31 x 3.31= 34.40"

34.40" x 10.59"= 364.29

364.29/1728= .210 Cubic Feet

.210 x 2 =0.42
0.42= how much total port displacement because of the two ports...

Thats correct, i didnt have the O.D. of the PVC. And multiplying times the number of ports is correct.
