    Is this possible?

    I have a ported box, the port can only be 10.25" long in total, but to get the desired tuning that i'd like, it needs to be about 1.0" longer....

    If I make up the 1.0" on the OUTSIDE of the box, does this work?!?!

    Re: Is this possible?

    Or what about something like this for a slot ported design, would the measurements for port length carry outside the box in this design?

    Im just trying to think of a NEW way of doing things...



    (Im more interested in the first one of this thread tho )

    Re: Is this possible?

    Yes, your first design would work.

    Doesn't matter where the port is located (inside or outside).

    Re: Is this possible?

    Really? Wow, thats great news!

    Im stuck at like 36hz or so right now, with this option I can actually get down to the 32hz range ( I know its not another 1" only, I was just using some made up numbers above )

    SWEET.

    I guess I forgot to mention that its a slot port... would this make any difference?

    Re: Is this possible?

    decreasing port area will also tune lower.

    But yes, you can put the port on the outside. That might look kind of cool, actually.

    Re: Is this possible?

    doesnt that decrease the overall port displacement inside the box thus changing the tuning?

    right, he would have to account for that.

    Re: Is this possible?

    The port inside the box is static, so I dont know how putting it above the box changes anything....

    .. it will also increase the chance of port noise.
