i have a wagon. i have a rear firing sealed enclosure. i'm debating on a ported box. what design do you recommend?
subs firing and up and ports firing rear?
both subs and ports firing rear?

also, can a wedge type box be slot ported given the setups listed above?

should this be in general discussion?

subs up and ports rear.

would something like this work?

yes. that would work lovely. called a CRX box.

can someone check the calculations for this box.
i am a newb so bare with me.

so the box will be designed like the picture above.
it wil be for 2 12"s prolly RE SX (if i can ever get a hold of them).

1" MDF or 3/4" (i dont know how a box like this would be braced)

so the external dimensions are as follows
Height = 16"
Width = 37"
top depth = 14"
bottom depth = 23.25"

as for the port, i dont think i'll have to build the part that goes up (in the pic)
Slot height = 1.5"
slot width = 17"
slot depth = 21"

are these calculations correct?

i believe the this will net about 4 cu ft after all displacements

anyone? maybe u have a program where u can check the math?

you can build it like that no problem, just use 3/4" MDF and put in a center divider so it is 2 seperate chambers. that will be all the bracing needed.

what will the port tuning = with these specs?

draw a picture and put numbers on. if you do that i can CAD it up and see what it comes out to :)

i can't upload my ghetto picture

figured it out

i forgot to mention, crx style box (subs up )

I don't want to jack your thread with my tomfoolery...:)

Reply over in my thread about my box woes if you're interested, heh.

when a speaker calls for a 1.9 cu ft ported. does that include the volume of the port as well?

ok, another question, regarding port tuning. i've been running the numbers through 12volt.com along with other calculator programs. when calculating the tuning for a slot port in relation to round ports, is it true that as long as the volume of the air inside the round port equals the volume of the slot port, the tuning will be the same?

no tuning will be lower with slot ported than with round, there is more surface area in the port, thus more friction and slower air movement...

effectively tuning the port lower than desired - always keep this in mind when designing slot ported

say im using 12 volts site. if i want 32hz tuning. do input a higher hz in the formula? since slotted porter will be lower, i should input say 37hz (whats a good number to offset)?

http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/boxcalcs.asp

here's an example. the dimensions of my slot port will be about 1.5" x 18.38"
1.5 x 18.38 = 27.57

conversion of area into diameter
27.57 = 3.14r^2
8.78 = r^2
2.96 = r
Diameter = 5.92

so...
D(diameter) = 5.92 Vb(net volume of box) = 2.0 Fb (tuning frequency) = 32hz

i get port length of 31.89
then in order to calculate the correct length of the slot port, i would calculate the volume of the round port. then using my 1.5 x 18.38 of the slot determine the length by getting the same volume?

also since its goin to be a slot port i should set the frequency higher?

thanx in advance whoever can help me...

more surface area, so more friction...?

That is VERY untrue!

More area = higher tuning, less length = higher tuning.

Less area = lower tuning, more length = lower tuning.

Only if your slot port is very skinny will it screw up tuning.

whats considered skinny?
is it the ratio of height to width
or is there a numerical value for skinny...say under an inch?

Get WinISD!

i think it's
www.linearteam.tk

If not, just google it...it's free. Then (copied from old convo I had on AIM...
[12:21] ngbd13: input your desire NET volume
[12:21] ngbd13: and tuning
[12:21] ngbd13: THEN design desire port area
[12:21] ngbd13: it will give you the port length!
[12:21] ngbd13: then...
[12:22] ngbd13: (Port area X Length)/1728 to get port displacement
[12:22] ngbd13: add that to NET volume, and add .3 for sub displacement
[12:22] ngbd13: that is your NEEDED gross volume
[12:22] ngbd13: :)
[12:23] UNDERC0VERPUNKER: alright, time to start knocking out numbers
[12:23] ngbd13: THEN!!!!
[12:23] ngbd13: State two dimensions of the box that you want, and solve for the third side....
[12:24] ngbd13: (L x W X H)/1728 = Gross Cubes
[12:24] UNDERC0VERPUNKER: yep
[12:24] UNDERC0VERPUNKER: good old geometry
[12:24] ngbd13: So, (1728 * Gross cubes)/(L x W) = Height
[12:24] ngbd13: or something
[12:24] ngbd13: WOOOOooooooooooooooooooooHOOoooooooooooooooooooooo o!!!!!!!!

Doesnt really help ya with the skinny port thing.

The ratio is normally 8:1

But I like to stay within 5:1
