    adjustable port

    i'm getting ready to redo the box. i'm gonna have a huge port for when i go to comps and i wanted to make some kinda plug for it for daily. i think i read somewhere that all you have to do is have some kinda "plate" to cover some of the port, making the cross sectional area smaller, lowering tuning. but i was thinking doesn't this reduced size have to stay consistant through-out the entire length of the port? if the port just came up and hit this it would cause some turbulance and possibly some port noise, correct?

    With that kind of plug, you should deffinitly get port noise. They sell plug ports, I dont remember where I saw it, but they do make them. You could always just have a small piece of MDF or something with some wingnuts that covers that port.

    Re: adjustable port

    what id do

    is build the box like regular with the SPL port in, then put in some metal tapped bolt holes that you drill into the wood ( kinda like an inverted T nut ) and build another port that is on a plate that you can put inside the bigger port. not sure how well it would work, but it should work.

    i've seen what your talking about. it worked out quite nicely. as for me changing ports like that is gonna be impossible. i believe i'm gonna build another box like the one i have now, except a few little tweeks

    you seen the box i have now...the half wall. i think its gonna go something like this

    get rid of that little lip on the bottom so i can drop the subs down lower. w/ the subs lower i will be able to fit a bigger port in. i'm gonna double up one the baffle this time **** broken braces! i was thinking of doing what you just said, but i don't know if it'll work that easy the port is angled up...so i don't think i'll be able to slide a port, inside the port due to the ceiling being in the way see what i'm saying...

    i haven't sat down to figure any numbers yet...but rough guessing i'm gonna say 5.5ft ported ~140in^2 port @ ~46Hz (for comp) and that would put me about 7.5-8ft sealed....you don't think that would be kinda big???
