    Ported enclosure for 10"

    Hey guys,

    Another enclosure build here. This time it's a ported enclosure for a 10". It's tuned to 32.5Hz with 25 sq inches of port area and 1.15 cubes.

    It wasn't for anyone so I wasn't really thinking about how the sub would be mounted in the end (I was just looking for the specs to be right) so It turns out the 10 cant fit on the front face of the enclosure and will have to be mounted on the side. It isn't a huge deal in my eyes but I was kind of ticked when I actually sat down and looked at it (after I made the cuts )...but nonetheless it will work just fine.

    Here are the pic-a-tures...

    Gettin started..



    All the pieces cut minus the top and bottom..



    Some of my calc's and math for the box...



    Port pieces rounded over...



    Got some new clamps (jorgensen, baby )

    4 power+ 4 ground runs of 1/0-gauge to rear
    152.1 @ 40Hz legal, certified...just getting started.

    Re: Ported enclosure for 10"

    Cut out the 45 degree inserts...



    Couldnt clamp the 45's in the corners with no space so I cut this piece which slid down and used the port-piece for support and forced the 45 degree insert into the corner untill the glue dried ..



    As is sits right now...





    Getting there, but we've been having power outages (southern ohio)...it's been really bad but specifically my neighborhood is the only one in the area with power ...only lost power for 2 hours today, thankfully

    The winds were insanity...knocked over a glass table on the deck and shattered it and a storage building's office's roof was blown completely off near-by ...trees were downed everywhere and traffic lights working is rare ...ugh

    Re: Ported enclosure for 10"

    Why, thank ye

    And this should be finished tomorrow if we still have power and if I have time, and the port opening will be nice and rounded over all the way around once the top is on

    Use sketchup and you won't have the mounting problem as you can see in scale what your enclosure will look like. It also saves time on doing the math to calculate the size of each panel.

    The build looks great so far.

    Re: Ported enclosure for 10"

    what 10 is going in there?

    Re: Ported enclosure for 10"

    Thanks guys, and yea...sketch-up is usually what I make my enclosure designs on to get perspective with...but this one was all on paper that I sketched-up really quick.

    Thats actually what I might be doing ..and this isn't for any 10 in particular, but most of my enclosures I use the Fi Q as a reference if im not making them for a specific sub already..

    And I wont be on for a while due to the storm that hit here, im without internet at my house and I have people staying there that I have to take care of...so I might not be on for a while ...just a heads-up

    (this means this box and other boxes are on hold for at least a couple days )

    Re: Ported enclosure for 10"

    Alright, finally some progress on this guy...

    I didnt get any pics of the top getting put on or anything between the last pics and this first pic ...but nothing exciting happened.

    Just glued and clamped on the front double-baffle piece, rounded over the port opening, and chamfered the double-baffle (and cut the hole out)..

    Here it is..



    Rounded over the port..
