Ok right now I have a JL 8w7 in my truck. Its in a sealed box at roughly 1.15 cubic feet. My box dimentions are 25 X 10 X 8. My truck is just a regular cab and i'm not willing to move the seat farward to much ( i'm rather tall, 6'3"). I want a ported box but am having trouble designing one due to the limited space. My 10" X 8" (width X hight) dimentions are set, they can't get bigger but the lenth (currently 25") can be extended. I'm cerious if you can have a port be totaly or partialy outside of the box. I don't know if it would be practical or not but it is an idea i had, good or bad I figured it be worth asking about. Either way I would like to design 2 boxes, one around 1.01 @ 40Hz and one at 28 Hz (volume can be determained later, but somewere around 1-1.5 cub) I can figure port freq and what not myself I just need help with the external dimentions. Some reason I just can't come up with any ideas?????
Also the port would be slot built out of MDF no round ports please!
Also i'm cerious to what kind of carpet you guys use to cover your boxes. I have 4 boxes which I would like to sell but are very rough looking. I would like to cover them to hide some of the rough spots. Thanks...
Any help would be greatly appreceated
