    13W7 Ported Fiberglass Box **PICS**

    Just got done doing my first layer of fiberglass over my new box.... the box sits between my newly modified rear seats (Cut back 60% seat to 40%) the port will go under the face of the sub, obviously.

    Anyways, It should be about 2.3-2.4cuft including port and sub displacement.... I will know more once I coat the inside with resin and fill 'er up with some water...

    There will be a 13W7 on a 1000/1 JL Amplifier or 2.

    Whats everyone think?









    This is what she's going into... (Changed the pic)

    i would have definatly made the baffle eaither flush, or at a slight angle, and made the curves from the port to the baffle out of MDF and rounded that edge.

    i dont know if that makes any sense. but yea.

    otherwise looks laright. pics in car?

    Re: 13W7 Ported Fiberglass Box **PICS**

    Thanks guys...

    This is only my 3rd Glassing project... But You learn most of what you need to learn in the first 2 So this is going a lot better...

    As for layers... what would everyone suggest? I would kinda think ported boxes do not need as many layers as a sealed box, or am I just dreamin? I dont see the ported box getting as pressurized as sealed??

    Bracing -- I thought about it, but I really didnt have the space to make this box look nice, and still fit where it has to go.... I am very limited for space.

    Adding more layers of glass to compensate for bracing? I will atleast do 2-3 more on the outside, 1 on the inside, for a total of 4-5 glass layers, and the heavily resin'd micro fleece... which is probably as thick as 2 layers of glass, just not as sturdy...

    Comments?

    Comments?
    Around the tuning frequency a vented enclosure is actually subject to more pressure than a sealed enclosure of the same volume. It's only when you drop below the tuning frequency that the pressure becomes less then sealed.

    Remember SPL=pressure, if a vented enclosure is producing more SPL than a sealed one, then the pressure is also higher inside the enclosure.
