    Tuning help

    Schools out and i can finally begin my box build. I want to make a 2 cubic foot box for my kappa perfect 12.1. The box is going to have to be made into abnormal shapes inorder to fit right. Will this be a problem when tuning the box and if so should i go with a sealed box? Also are mitar joints necesary when building a box?

    A weird shaped enclosure is fine, it's only the net volume that matters, the ports can be pvc (plumbing) pipe glued into a firm fitting hole or you can build a square/rectangular port into the box it's self.

    Normal butt joints with screws and wood glue are sufficient for most applications.

    Re: Tuning help

    I got a port that is .88" too small in length. Will this little bit make any difference in the tunning frequency of the box.

    Re: Tuning help

    Alright build time is nearing. Does the location of the port make any difference? Most boxes have the port facing the same way as the subwoofer but I will not have enough space for this and need to put it on the side of the box.

    Not really, looking at mabie 1 or 2 hz shift in tuning, nothing to be concerned about.

    Side of the box will work fine.
