    Would this work for a 15" sub?

    I'm thinking about making my first sub box and i want to make a vented box. THe sub is a Rockford Fosgate RFR2215 (its a old sub, but there awesome, atleast to me... )..

    so here are the dimensions for the box...

    H: 16.8"
    W: 25.9" These are all internal measurments and using a 3/4 MDF...
    D:12"

    it will be roughly 3ft^3...

    the Port diameter is going to be 4" and the port length is 8".. and i want it tuned to 35 hz..

    will this work? and will this be reasonable... Rockford says that the range should be between 2.25 to 3 ft^3....

    if you guys have any recommandations or tips that would be greatly appreciated....

    forget to mention that this is going into a 2003 honda accord 4dr...

    dont forget to take the sub diplacement, and port displacment into account, or you'll end up tuning higher than you want.

    I would go with at least 2 4" ports on a 15, however it will change your port length for same tunning.

    totally forget about that... so i should make the box bigger so it takes the sub displacement and port displacement so hte internal volume would equal roughly 3 ft^3?
