    What did you use to make this box?

    Re: Very Quick Question About Tuning Boxes

    i did the volume calculation in an excel file i have that is setup to work with the moe lester box plans (but you should be able to do it by hand if you have a very basic understanding of math )

    i then plugged that and the port dimensions into WinISD

    Re: Very Quick Question About Tuning Boxes

    I forwarded to your email and everybody else that wants it can download it here.

    Download Box Calculator Via Xluben

    Below is straight from Xluben's email he sent me....
    here's the excel file i made. the top part is if you have round ports, the bottom part is for one slot port on the side of the box (like moe lester designs). you should be able to figure all of this out by hand pretty easily though. once you get the final box volume, enter that and the port dimensions into winisd (you can make a project with any driver), and it will tell you the tuning.

    hope that helps,
    Ben

    Re: Very Quick Question About Tuning Boxes

    well, i hope that file helps everyone out. it has gone through a few revisions depending on the style of the box i was thinking of.

    just make sure you use the round port calculator for round ports and the slot port calculator for slot ports. also, the slot port calculator is only set up for one port on the side of the box.

    Re: Very Quick Question About Tuning Boxes

    ok, im confused with this. Is this how its supposed to look? Did I input everything right for a 29" box?


    Ok, what if I wanted it to be 29" wide and only 23" for the depth.
