    Finally porting my Arrrr's...

    Alright...I've been waiting to do this for some time and spring break is my only option....i'm inb/w choices on 4.0, 4.5 and 5 ft^3 all tuned at 34hz....which would ya'll say. I've only read replies in prior threads saying 2-2.5 per sub, so should i just cut it down the middle and go with 4.5ft^3? And another thing...on all 3 designs i had a 16" by 3", 3.5" and 4" port respectivly to the pre-mentioned sizes. Those big enough? And what kind of bracing, if any, should I throw in? Corner bracing, cross bracing...clue me in here guys. And should I concern myself with a double baffle? I've only built a sealed box, and a small ported box for a TB8...this is my first real build. Thanks in advance.

    Re: Finally porting my Arrrr's...

    That box size is good.

    As for the port area, i'd shoot for around 25 sq. in. per sub. You could roughly translate that into four 4" ports if you like.

    Re: Finally porting my Arrrr's...

    is there going to be a real noticable diff (to the ear or mic) b/w 4.0-5.0ft^3?

    After reading your post tommy, i'll shoot for the 16"x3.5" port; that'd give me exactly 56in^2 of port area.

    4-5 cubes is a big difference, i'd say that 2 cubes per sub is a little on the low side.

    Re: Finally porting my Arrrr's...

    I run mine 5.0ft^3 tuned to 32hz. Single side port in a shared chamber. Sounds great to me.

    Re: Finally porting my Arrrr's...

    I didn't brace it at all. It is built with 3/4 MDF, Elmers Probond and 2in. 18 ga. brads. I thought about using the moulding idea for bracing and smoother inner corners, but didn't get the stuff in time ( I have very little patience )

    Re: Finally porting my Arrrr's...

    I can build a box for less than $50 dollars...i'm not willing to shove out the quoted $300. I know they get results and mad props to Mark for it, but I'm just not willing to spend it.
