Very helpful, but does the size of the box matter? I'm obviously a newb, and am getting ready to build a vented box. But I want to know if it really matters how big the box is. I figured I want to tune my box to about 36 htz so the vent would need to be 9.98" area. But no info on volume of the box. So, does it matter, or can I just build it however big I want it?

matters what subs, how big the box will be and port and sub displacement is also needed for that port calulator. usually the bigger the box the lower u want tunned or more subs sharing the same air space
