View Full Version : Hey all, I want to make my first ported box

08-08-2009, 12:55 AM
I've been browsing these forums for a little while, and just joined today.
I would like to build a ported box, and was wondering where to start?

I have never built a box myself yet, but I have many years experience with carpentry, metalworking, etc. All the tools in the world to build it, plenty of time, and a decent ammount of cash for materials.

I just am slightly stumped when it comes to the math lol. :crap:

I have seen a few box calculators out there, and to be honest I don't know how reliable they are.

Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated. Maybe someone can help me design one?

If you need any information at all, just let me know and I will do my best to fill you in.

I'd start with choosing a sub and go from there. Do you have one in mind?

Yeah, I have a CVX15 4DVC on the way :)

I was reading in its instruction manual that for the most out of this sub (SPL wise anyways..) Im going to need up to a maximum of 5ft^3 + Port Displacement

And correct me if I'm wrong but, Im guessing I will want to build a box upwards of 4ft^3 but no more than 5 right?

Does that sound about right? I guess im unsure on how to make a box to fit this subs specs.
