    are you wanting to know how much port area you should have, or how long the port should be, or all of the above

    This would be highly dependant on how you want the box layed out and what type of port do you want to use.

    To give you an example, based on the outside values you gave. If you want a slot ported box with the port on the same face as the sub, you would have the following:

    Net Volume: 7.60 cu/ft
    Tuning Freq: 40.00 Hz
    Slot Vent Width: 3.00 inches
    Slot Vent Lenght: 11.00 inches
    Port Volume: 85.50 sq/in

    or

    Net Volume: 6.70 cu/ft
    Tuning Freq: 32.00 Hz
    Slot Vent Width: 3.00 inches
    Slot Vent Lenght: 26.00 inches
    Port Volume: 85.50 sq/in

    Now this will be completely different if you want the port on the 15" panel or with round ports.

    I usually base the port area on the net volume of the box, to give people an idea of what they are looking at.

    JFYI, if you wnat more port area you will drastically effect the amount of net volume your driver see.

    port is 6"x19"=114^2" of port area. and it is 20" long tuning it to 35 hz
    . after port displacement, it is 7 cubes

    exterior dimensions are 36x36x14.75..im not sure that you would need a double baffle or not, probably better going with one though
