    Longer the port a little. Also note that calc doesn't take into driver displacement (.19cf i think) which wil throw **** off a little.

    which box? the second one, after driver displacement would be around 3.9 cubes tuned to around 29...at least that what I'd think. Why would he want a longer port?

    well I tried using the subwoofer tools box caculator or whatever but I put in the length to be 26" and it keeps automatically puttin it back to 31.5". If anyone could help me out with that, I have L-26" x W-32" x H-14" tuned between 28-33Hz. It could probably go an inch wider but I made it that size to be able to get it in the trunk.

    I meant shorten it. No real need to have it tuned that low..

    Forget the online calcs and have someone do it for you that KNOWS what they're doing

    Fooling around with an online calculator is just going to waste your time anyway, he is correct.
