Ok, im building a wall in my car at the moment. Im trying to figure out how i can get a drivers side port to work. I know drivers side port will meter better usually. My question is, if i port on top, will i lose a lot of output? It would be much easier to port on top instead of the drivers side...

im not sure if you will lose audible output as i've never personally built a wall but have been around alot, you may not meter as well because of the way everything loads, but sometimes you need to do what works for you and not the once a month or once a year meter.

well...dont have much currently.

it can be 34" tall 44" wide and however deep it needs to be really, but itll probably have to end up looking like this...because of the hatch.

ok just on the face if you have 34 t by 44 wide then this will do you
i drew the subs as 19" (outside diameter) also assuming double mdf on all sides the port would be full height and be about 7.5 " wide thats 19.375 in^2 per ft^3 assuming you stick to 12 cubes after bracing and displacements http://i668.photobucket.com/albums/vv50/DAPPA5/plugwall.jpg

will the slant on the top of the box effect tuning at all? Im pretty sure the port will have to go a fair way back into the box

dappa5
12-29-2009, 12:08 AM

i appreciate your help a ton man, im not positive on those dimensions just yet. i need get the outer supports for the wall done before i can make accurate dims. Should be the very close though, if not the same as the ones i gave
