    Re: box website

    I did a couple sample boxes and they dont look quite right to me. it makes totally unrealistic port sizes and leave no room to actually mount the sub LOL. a 4cuft box with 400sqin or port area is sick.

    It only takes a few parameters into account to do this. I think it's mostly based on tuning frequency, sub diameter, and sub quantity. It sometimes gives me too much port area. Simply falsify the xmax to a smaller number. Adjust it until you get the port area you want.

    It's been years since I have been really active in car audio forums. I posted a ton about 10 years ago here on caraudio.com, termpro.com, sounddomain.com, caraudioforum.com, and a whole bunch more that I no longer remember. You may remember me. If not, you're probably just young haha. Because of the many years since I've done any selling / buying, the only person I can remember for my references is Team PSI (David Moore).

    You can download Winisd, The free version works fine. It is pretty easy to work with once you spend a few minutes playing around with it.

    Thats the program I used to build my last box. I've yet to test it, since my sub isn't here yet It's nice how they tell you the exact cuts you need to make though, saves a lot of time!

    +1 for WinISD - mapping/designing is great, plus the database is suprisingly complete, and you can find T/S parameters for any speaker out there. lol I remember playing around converting metric to inches for hours before I figured out how to do it in-program... good times

    I'll agree to disagree. Atleast you actually spelled "enough." Seems to be the cool thing to do nowadays to just say, "nuff said," and it has always pissed me off

    now if he is using this site he is not a box design pro which means he wont know what too much port area is. I personally dont need this to design boxes, I was just testing it out for the OP

    this is the best response i've seen so far. if you know what you want (box size, tuning, and port area) you can manipulate the site to give you something pretty good. for that situation it is accurate, and works fairly well.

    if you want it to actually design the box for you i wouldn't recommend it.

    Re: box website

    I guess it depends on the subs...when I used it for 1 12" SSD [email protected], it worked out well. I guess when if you went for some real high xmax subs or something odd, it may throw the program off.

    Re: box website

    A place I do not reccomend is

    http://www.diysubwoofers.org/prt/dual_chamber.htm

    I tried using it to make an ABC box. The one part is .969 GROSS.

    13.5*13.5*9.17...I guess...seems kinda small.
