    help! made box too big. now reducing its width

    i followed moe lester's plan and made the box that was 3 cubes at 30 hz to go into a lexus is300. (doh!) i realized i didnt measure my trunk opening first to see if i was gonna be able to get that box in there

    the plan i followed was:
    http://img23.imageshack.us/my.php?im...465sqin6xu.png

    so halfway building the box, i got all the sides, back and front glue'd and screwed together. i decide to test fit the box in the car, and realized that the box is wayyy too long. so after about 30 minutes of cussing and punching things. i finally go back to the drawing board

    i havent put the port in or the top peice of the box in yet. and the only way i can get the box in my trunk is if i cut 8 inches off the box so that it would be 30" across.

    now my question is what would my cubic inch drop down to?

    and how would i go about to redoing the port to keep it at 30hz?

    Re: help! made box too big. now reducing its width

    i want to be able to pull this box out for access to my spare tire. so sticking with it the way it currently is, is out the question.

    and yes i have a table saw

    and i also forgot to add if needed, im running a 15" alpine type r with an 1000w hifonics amp.

    my current box is a prefab sealed enclosure, basically i want a larger ported box thats bigger then the sealed but small enough i can take out and stick in when i need to

    set it to whatever you want to take off, run the whole side through, and make a new piece to cover it. Had to do it several times.

    Re: help! made box too big. now reducing its width

    already tried putting it longways and etc. my only bet is to trim the width down, thats the only thing i can do.

    but now my main question is

    what would my cubic inch drop down to?

    and how would i go about to redoing the port to keep it at 30hz?

    Re: help! made box too big. now reducing its width

    im gonna cut 8 inches off. so it would be 30 inches in width.

    using the calculator on subwoofertools.com i should be at about 2.6 cubes

    and i should trim my port peice to about 20" to keep it at 30hz

    does this sound about right?

    Re: help! made box too big. now reducing its width

    yeah i would cut a couple inches off, dont worry too much bout it though, tuning between 30-35 hz isnt that noticable

    You're shaving off 1 cubic foot of airspace. 2 cubes is just not going to work with that sub.
