    calculating port and volume, HELP ME!!

    I'm using this calculator to get my port length. I'm wanting my subs to see a final volume of 4.5 cuft with a tuning of 31 hz. Its giving me 30.85 inches. Do I need to add the volume of the port to the 4.5 cuft to get the final volume of the box?

    PS- my old thread was a dead thread, so i started a new one with a more exact question.

    what size and how many ports are you using?

    and yes, so need to add the port displacement to 4.5 to figure out how big of a box you need to build.

    yea you need to add the disp. of the length of the port/s to the box.
    (if the ports will be internal)
    what i do is go back to the box calc. and try to add a few inches to the box.
    to make up for the disp. on the ports, dont forget woofer disp.

    im still learning so if im wrong correct me lolz

    so, if I want my subs to see 4.5 cuft, i need to add the subs displacement and port displacement.

    4.5 cuft. + .14 cuft. (subs displacement) + 1.01 (2 6" round ports @ 30.85") = 5.65 cuft.

    And the only thing that is left is adding in the bracing displacement.

    Is that right?
