    Re: building ported boxes?

    when u tune a box. u tune it for optimum cabin frequency. to tune a box properly u need to know the specs or teil small peramiters of the sub. to tune a box, u vary the lenght of the port.

    Re: building ported boxes?

    tuning is varied by volume, port area (legnth x width of port opening), and port legnth..

    And other than the BL of a sub....TS parameters are a waste of time as they do not account for cabin gain. They do however give you a "basic" idea for a starting point.

    Re: building ported boxes?

    The tuning of a box is the frequency that the port resonates at, or in other words where you get the most output from the backwave.

    As inhuman said, it is determined by the cross sectional area of the port and the port lenth.
