everyone's always asking for help with box specifications for their particular sub. as this list grows larger, people can refer to it. simply posting your box dimensions and perhaps a picture could be helpful to many. i hope it catches on and works; just an idea.

ok, ill start. even though my car is huge, i didnt want my enclosure to interfere with the third row and other things in that take place in the back. so had to design my enclosure around that. i made a sealed enclosure for three JL Audio 10W3v2-D6's.

external dimensions:
L: 11.75 in.
H: 12 in.
W: 42 in.

seperated into three sealed chambers, internal dimensions of each one:
internal L: 10.25
internal H: 10.5
internal W: 12.5
total internal volume: ~0.77 ft. ^3

hope that helps someone. feel free to ask questions.

single 12" ts-w2000SPL

2 cuft..

40cmX4cmX40cm <------- 2 cuft(after port displacement)
singe 4" diameter PVC pipe.. either 11 to 12 inch long (cant remember)
tunned to 35 hz.. (PVC pipe is located at the rear right of enclosure... sub facing trunk (NOT CABIN)

some times produce port noice at spacific frequencies... i only notice them while trunk is open.. and my head is inside the trunk..

no pics... but i painted it ghetto black with some work with white.. looks cool... will post some pix when i get a cam or so..

i now have the port painted black and the box vynil'd a dark blue, ill get pics up of that later on

the box is 5cuft after port and sub displacement @ 27hz and the port is 3"x15" ...dont remember how long though, something in the mid 20's

me too...looks WAY messed up. Also...it's dying for more port area!

Supa_c: I can fit it in my truck :)

Currently (i've had TONS of boxes...some1 should come visit my box graveyard...a lot a still sitting around!)...
7 cubes net @32hz w/ 120 sq. in. of port! (18 XXX box)
Dims (internal):
W:46.25"

OH...i need to get my friend's Digital camera! (My brother took ours on vacation...)

It is so beautiful...the box...i sanded the entire thing with a DA sander and rounded of the corners, then i went over it with 420grit sand paper and the DA. It's SOOO smooth...way smoother than stock MDF. It's honestly one of the prettiest plain mdf boxes i've seen! I'll try to get pics today! peace

are you dumb? its not exactly rocket science, a port is a port no matter where you put it. theres a box and a port, and you can stick em wherever as long as there is enough airflow to utilize it, not really the hardest thing in the world

Dumb? you decide. Thanks for the insult though.

Umm yes it is rocket science. No **** a port is a port regardless of location. Your effective port length is incorrect. Unless you factored in the port consisting of two openings. Your port does not have a single opening on the side of it. It consists of two openings flowing in to a vent. You can not count the side of the box as part of the port length. Also did the port surface area remain the same the whole length. By the picture just observing it, It looks as if the beginning of the port within the box has less surface area as the end of the port. 3"x15"???

Now if you already factored this in to the design BG's to you and congratulations.

If not you might want to do some moding.

I don't even want to get in to the air pressure affecting tuning with a two sided open end port. That's to subjective and inconclusive anyway.

Peace.

wait what am i missing here?? yes the port stays the same surface area throughout with 15"x3", the port is 27.25" long, and no the port does not have 2 exits, the sides are only for the air to move and are not part of the port, the end of the port is marked by the green lines. the 2 sides combined have more surface area than the port hole itself so i figured it shouldent be a problem

( (1.463 x 10^7 x (45/pi)) / ((27hz^2)(5x12x12x12)) ) - 1.463 x the square root of (45/pi) = 27.75" .... my tuning is around 27hz

i still dont understand. the side opening inside the box does what? i see the port opening, but i dont see its other end - unless its at the bottom of the last bend that is not visible... the side hole on that port is for what reason? it looks like a big hole in your ports wall... im very confused.

//edit

i took the time to look again. and i understand now. the farthest one is the port-outside-hole, and the one with the dotted line one is the other side. the hole in the side is the actual port exit.

i would imagine lots of turbulance doing it that way for some reason. but if it works, kudos.


If it stays 45 sq. inches through the port, then yes ...

If you think that's complex, you should see my plans for my GF's 10W0s ;)

well if you got it, then show it :bowdown:

well I have a planet audio FU 18-2... I'm building the box right now and will make a post with pics here in a bit. It will be 6cuft @ 28hz. and 120in^2 of port with a 1/8 hight to width ratio. outside dimensions are 42.5in x 37.5in x 13.5in with a little 2.75 x 7.75 notch out of the bottom back so it can fit in my truck...

box built and vynil'd and works beautifully! the sin sweep 20k hz - 20hz is the best from 50hz-30 its just insane and the last 3 seconds or so you just see the sub throwing itself up and down with almost no sound sept the swoosh of the driver itself (prolly cuz i cant hear 20hz lol), and no port noise what so ever, it might be a weird design but it works:)

my crappy carpet job

i began to make this sealed box to maximize space in my trunk which it did, but when i got done i realized that i could have made it a little bit smaller. What do you guys think about 12" LI's in 1.75 cubes each sealed (recommended 1-1.75) ??? thats not to big is it ?? i was going to try it out when i get my subs in and maybe mess around with a smaller box later if i dont like it, but i hope it will be fine.

you can always throw some extra wood on the inside to lower the volume.(ttt for a helpful topic)

wheres the port? a little small for a ported box for 3 W3s. i think that's even under what JL recommends sealed. looks good though.

soundstreamer
02-14-2005, 12:19 PM
it is too small. according to the owners manual the dual2-ohm should have 1cuft and 13" of port each. i disigned the box for two of the subs cuz of space restrictions...poly-filled...stuck in a third.
the port comes straight out the side opposite the speakers. i didn't want to deal with the ending the port on a sloped face.

genaric 3.2 cube @ 30hz box. will be about 3 cubes after sub displacement. so between 29~31hz depending on sub size :)

the orange is a 4x8 sheet of MDF, the black lines are the physical cut lines for the saw, and their dimensions and names are listed :)

hope that helps somone in this world.

From the math that I did, yeah...if it's too big, I could always add some wood blocks to fill up the airspace.

bcarpenterfhl
04-12-2005, 06:08 PM
when i designed you that box with 0.5 mdf and a 2 inch diamter port, i used bbp6's driver database to find out that sub's displacement and it was tiny. i can double check if you want. just post the model number and company of the subs.

bbp6's database gives 0.00886 cubic feet per sub, so 0.0177 cubic feet total for sub displacement.

ps 10.5 * 6.5 * 18.5 = 1262.625, 1262.625/1728 = 0.73 cubic feet. thats your volume without displacements. your box as is is still tuned to 69.9 Hz though with a volume of 0.702 cubic feet, no biggie.

Dimensions i just did for a single Kicker L7 (15 inch):

here you go. someone might want to verify this. but i think it's right. got it tuned to 33 Hz.

http://img106.exs.cx/img106/448/externaldim9fq.jpg
box dimensions, dont mind the "port may not fit" message. its a flaw of the program.

what program is this that you used and where can i get it ???

what program is this that you used and where can i get it ???

thats most likely wrong. someone asked me to plug in all this stuff into BBP6, and i just posted it. Though, it usually gets you in the all park of +/- 2 Hz. it doesnt calculate slot port displacement correctly, so the tuning is often wrong. However, when using round ports or sealed boxes, it calculates them perfectly. you can buy it for $125, or limewire it.
