There are several members on here that can design you a nice enclosure including a cutsheet with nothing more than the information you've posted in this thread and a few bucks. Buck comes to mind (if he's still doing designs) but I know there are others.

Looks close enough to me, though I'm no expert. It shows your physical port length, so, if i were you, I'd use a common wall for one side and make sure the middle of the port runs that length (21.25"), while keeping the port area consistent, bend as needed.

what is a common wall?? it will be a side port box if that helps you?? how long should the port going into box need to be (cut size) and how long should the port inside the box making the L need to be?? (Cut Size)

Another question.. the wall of the opening from the port going down.. since the port is open 4 inches does that mean the the first wall of the porting going into the box is 4 inches from the inside of the back wall? and then 21 inches over?

Not even sure that's proper terminology, but ya, an outer wall shared by the enclosure and the port.

I'm not sure which way you're planning on running the port...but if you run it down the side of box (the 25" side), then yes, cut that piece (inner port wall) 4" short of the inside of the back wall (15" x 20.25"). That gives you 20.25" of port length already. So I'm not sure it's necessary to bend the port for 1 more inch...I doubt you'd hear a difference. But if you want to, then ya, cut a 15" x 1" piece and continue the port in the other direction (parallel to the back wall)

Alternatively, you can just run the whole port along the back wall and exit to the side (not sure if that's what you meant by 'side port') with a 15" x 21.25" piece...no bending or additional pieces needed.

Hope that helps.

So the side inner wall going into the box is port 1 at 20.25 x 15 then 2nd part is 1x x 15 ??? when i did the dimensions put 26 why does it change to 20.25 physical inches?
so the box would look like this im assuming and be 30 hz or close without the inch

Yup, looks good to me. Don't know why it's changing your port length. Pretty sure, the longer the port, the lower the tuning. But at this point, I'd just build it to the specs you have and see how it sounds.

I was recently informed by a member here that you can be off quite a bit (up to 20% in some cases) on your calculations and it's unlikely you'd even hear a difference.

What you've got there looks solid and fairly hard to F up. I say BUILD IT!
