Sooooo, I still haven't had a custom box made... and I keep hearing things that make my old ideas sound obsolete.

I've got a new one...
My current box tuned at 35hz, makes bass from rock/country sound like poo poo.
I love how it sounds on the low end, though.

A friend of mine has a box tuned higher than mine, with the same subs. And his box makes his low end sound like poo poo.
I love how it sounds with rock/country, though.


Can't I just get a box with like... FOR EXAMPLE;
Has 4 small aero ports that when all un-plugged generate 20hz. When one is plugged its 30hz, when two are plugged 40hz, etc. So that I can plug/unplug according to what music i'm listening too.


What are the problems if any with this design?

interchangeable port would be a better idea.

A section of the box you make interchangeable, and do a few diff port options, like duel aeros, single aero, sealed, square port ect... then you would just change the port to suit the music you want to listen too. sounds like a lot of stuffing around tho.

I've put a brace in slot ports that when 1 side is capped off, It would change the tuning from competition 53hz tuning, to daily 33hz tune. The cap was bolted in with a large weather stripping(I think it was for a camper shell, the guy I built it for brought it over) seal around the edge to keep it from making noise from vibration and ensure a good seal.
