Could anyone check out my vent calculations out real quick. I just need the multiple verification to make sure ive got it all right. Id hate to build a box then find out its tuned to something i dont want.

Materials: 3/4" MDF
Exterior Height: 17"
Exterior Width: 37"
Exterior Depth: 18"
Driver Displacement: 305 cubic inches
Interior Volume: 5.07 cubes
Interior Port Height: 3"
Interior Port Width: 17"
Port Length: 12"

If anyone could double-check the port calculations and make sure theyre accurate, id really appreciate it :)

i got 5.07 also but you have to subtract for port displacement also ;)

So i subtract the port displacement from the total internal volume, then the end? Or do i have to recalculate the port length...?

(BTW, i pulled an all nighter, hence the odd post times.)

both, its a trial and error process. you increase/decrease the port, it affects the total internal volume (Vb), which affects the overall tuning. someone should extend on this, but im too lazy.

Materials: 3/4" MDF
Exterior Height: 17"
Exterior Width: 37"
Exterior Depth: 18"
Driver Displacement: 305 cubic inches
Interior Volume: 5.07 cubes
Interior Port Height: 3"
Interior Port Width: 17"
Port Length: 12"

Port Displacement:
17 * (3+.75) * (12 - 3/2) = 669.375ci
+.75 for the mdf, minus 3 divided by 2 for end correction

Driver Displacement:
305ci

Displacements = 305 + 669.375 = 974.375ci

Internal Volume:

(17-1.5) * (37-1.5) * (18-1.5) = 9079.125ci

Net Volume = Internal Volume - Displacements: 9079.125 - 974.375 = 8104.75ci
= 4.69ft^3 => Vb

Port Area = 3*17 = 51 => Av

Lv = 12

With that, I get a frequency of 40.4651hz...

my mathematica stuff:
inputs 1 & 3 are the definitions of the Port length function (Lv) & then the solving for Fb based on Lv, Av, & Vb.

the first inputs are my box (listed in my sig) just to verify the results.

In[1]:=
Lv[Av_,Fb_,Vb_] := (Av*1.84*10^8)/(Vb*1728*(Fb/.159)^2) - 0.823*Sqrt[Av]

In[2]:=
Lv[26.25, 32, 3.0]

Out[2]=
18.786

In[3]:=
TunFreq[Av_,Vb_, PLen_] := Sqrt[1/(((PLen + 0.823*Sqrt[Av] )/(Av*1.84*10^8))*(Vb * 1728)) \
* .159^2]

In[4]:=
TunFreq[26.25, 3.0, 18.786]

Out[4]=
32.

In[5]:=
TunFreq[51, 4.69, 12]

Out[5]=
40.4651

In[6]:=
Lv[51, 40.4651, 4.69]

Out[6]=
12.
