    IF those dimensions are your internals, your volume before DRIVER displacement is 4.55ft^3 and IF thats correct, your tuning is ~43hz. Thats using a formula off of JL's site and mind you there could be error on my part.

    I made a typo, I figured those numbers were internals...I edited my original post to reflect that. But also too, you dont have much of a port to displace much volume....

    Re: for are expert enclosures plz NEED INFO ON A BOX

    Higher tuned boxes have a shorter port length and in turn just dont displace a whole lot of space in the box. Its not going to harm the sub at all. Just a geometry thing...4.5ft^3 wouldnt be that far off for a 15 especially tuned that high...

    Re: for are expert enclosures plz NEED INFO ON A BOX

    Did someone on here design it? Just to clarify, are those numbers you gave in the original post external measurments? Tuned to 43hz would be the reason why it sounds "wierd" on the low notes...

    Re: for are expert enclosures plz NEED INFO ON A BOX

    Just for Shits and giggles I did it figuring those were externals...I got a volume before driver displacment of ~3.5ft^3 and tuning came out to be ~49hz....

    This port length measurment you listed, is this the physical port length, or the effective port length? there's a major difference....

    Re: for are expert enclosures plz NEED INFO ON A BOX

    no no no...the piece inside the box is just a derivative measurment of the port lentgh. The actual and effective port length is much different. Being a 4" wide port, your effective length should be in the neighborhood of...20"s...I think?

    EDIT: Redid the math with a ballpark number of 20.5" for port length and its still 42hz...
