    will 2 inches cut change much?

    well i kinda cut 2 inches too short on the width of my slot ported box.

    the box made by ported accelerator was 20"w, 15"h, 21.5"d and net volume of 2.0 tuned to 35hz. now its 18" in width and the i cut down the length on the slot port also 2" to keep an opening of 4" inside the box for the port. i know this will change the net volume a little but what about the frequency?

    this was my original


    this is whats happened


    anyone got any ideas if thats ok or some major changes to the frequency has been made??

    If that 30.25 is the actual length of the port, your final box is 1.81ft^3 tuned to 37hz. 33.75 square inches of port surface area.

    That is before speaker displacment...

    Re: will 2 inches cut change much?

    ic thanks. but isnt a net volume of 2.0 after speaker displacement? my speaker displacement is .071 cubic feet. what will my final cubic feet be and frequency? also if i cut down the port length, how can the port area be the same?

    The net volume is 1.81 cubes, according to trigger. So after your speaker displacement (.071 cubes), the box will be 1.739 cubes.

    What kind of sub is this? Seems like .071 is rather small..

    It will be fine on that type of music. The port surface area is determined by the Height and Width of your port not the Length. So it remained the same. You have to add port and speaker displacment to find the net volume. You can't build a 2ft^3 box with a 1ft^3 port and say it is still 2 cubic feet. It would be a 1ft^3 box.

    Hope that helps

    Re: will 2 inches cut change much?

    yes i know that. but on the port calculator it says desired net volume so shouldnt that mean it will calculate everything (speaker displacement, port disp) and give me a 2.0 net volume after speaker and port displacement?

    No. What are you using? Not even win ISD will do that.

    Re: will 2 inches cut change much?

    hey trigger wait how did you arrive at 1.81cu ft of volume before displacements again?

    correct me if im wrong which i probably am but considering my 18", 15", 21.5 external measurements. if i subtract the .75 mdf wood from the sides and the inside and get internal measurements of 15.75",13.5",19.25" by subtracting 0.75 x 3 for the width and depth, and 0.75 x 2 for the height i get an internal volume of 2.36 cu ft before displacement by

    15.75x13.5x19.25 = 4093.03
    take that divide by 1728
    and you get 2.36 of cubic feet before port and speaker displacement
    i dont know if im right but i just thought of it lol
    i hope i am right though because that would mean i get around 33 hertz tuning frequency
    feel free to burst my bubble..lol
