Is the RE bax calc any good? Seems to be the best to me...

also, does it show you the net volume? Or the gross before the port it taken out?

I use winiSD and my own excel calculator to make boxes.

The most dependable way, imo, is literally a calculator and doing the math from scratch

Or you could just look up the sub displacement :confused:

i know the sub displacement and i subtract enough width where it shrinks the box that small so i know the tuning increase....

online box calculators are a good starting point to find port lengths and help calculate tuning but like pioneer said its always best to bust out the calculator and graph paper and draw your own plans by hand. but they are all pretty much the same giving very similar values for the same size box.

use the online calculators to find the volume, port area and tuning you want then draw it up on paper and calculate the exact volume and tuning of the box you want to put in your trunk.

winisd to see sub parameters in boxes

then calculator/pen/paper for the actual designing.

dont get any better than that ;)

Yea, getting a good idea with re's calculator and then trnasfering it over to sketch-up for calculations of your own is how I usually go about it...but alsways make the enclosure a bit larger on airspace and tuned a bit lower than what youre aiming for on re's calculator so when you take away in your subs displacement and possibly a double baffle things are accounted for and adjustments are minimal
