    Need advice on Box for 18" TC-5200

    Kyle sent me the specs for the box:

    "3 cubic feet with a 50" area port that is 41" long will work which is a 28Hz tuning frequency."

    So that's for a regular slot ported box which would be easy, but I wanna make it with 2 slot ports like my current box. One on each side with the sub in the middle on top like this:

    [/QUOTE]

    I called Kyle and he said it would work fine with 2 ports, I just don't know how to split em up correctly so that it's still tuned to 28 hz. Obviously each one would have 25 inches of port area, but how long should each one be?
    Any help would be appreciated and I'll make sure to post up some pics of the build and the finished product. Thanks.

    Re: Need advice on Box for 18" TC-5200

    I'm trying to plot it on winisd but I don't have the PE parameter so it's giving me an error symbol. How would I get the Pe if it's not listed on tc's website?

    Re: Need advice on Box for 18" TC-5200

    I asked Kyle if it was 3 feet before or after displacement and he said before because the box is actually a little big for the driver so the added walls of the port and everythign will bring the volume down to pretty close to the right size. Hard to believe such a large driver can be put in such a small box. I was expecting to get dimensions for a 6 to 8 foot box!
    And my other sub is playing happily in my car right now.

    Re: Need advice on Box for 18" TC-5200

    When it's saying 50.86 inches of port length, is that split between each port so that each port gets 25.43 inches or does each port need 50.86 inches by itself?

    Re: Need advice on Box for 18" TC-5200

    So here's what I have drawn up so far. The only thing I don't know how to do correctly is the length of the port walls. There's 4 total as you can see and I know they have to be 3 inches away from the back wall. But I still don't know for sure if each one has to be 50.86 inches or if that's split. If someone could give me the correct measurements of those 4 walls, or 2 I guess since each side is identical, it would help a lot. I'm off to pick up the beast right now from TC sounds so hopefully there's some answers when I get back so I can bang the box out real quick and hear this sub. Thanks.
