I know that this sub is junk but whatever, this is my first system ever. i have no clue about building boxes but i heard that a ported box is the way to go if you want loud bass. i dont really care about the quality. :rolleyes:
these are the specs:
the recommended Ported Box Dims: 1.70 - 3.55 cu.ft.
height: 19 inch
width: 17 inch
depth: 16 inch
19x17x16=5168.00

5168.00/1728=2.99 cu ft

and to find the port:
(17+0.75)x19x16-0.75/1728=3.37

is ths correct? i dont know what the 3.37 is :crazy: though is that how big the port is??

any help would be greatly appreciated

and also, what would the inside of the box look like?
Like this:
_______________
I _________ I
I I I
I I I
I I I
I I I
I I__{_____}__I

How big are the peices that make the port) the second row of I's and the parallel solid line?

try drawing something in MS paint to show us what you mean. Then host it from www.imageshack.us.

Also what size are you going to make you port? Round or squeare. Like the width and height of the port then i will help you figure rough length.

you are not going to fit a very wide port on a box that is 17" wide with 15" being used for the sub and 2 1/4"" used for the thickness of the wood since you will have 3 boards. 2 outside edge ones and one internally for the port. So you need to make your face wider.
