    New box in progress need help

    wells I got me some 3/4 MDF, screws, wood glue, silicone caulk, sandpaper and filler today and started on a box to tuck neatly into my Monte's *** end. Im tryin to give it all a walled off look.. but before cutting the holes tomorrow i need some help
    I need to calculate my box so i can tune it

    34 1/2 Wide x 16 1/4 tall x 14 1/2 deep. All internal measurements so no need to account for the mdf sides..and I would like to tune it to the low 30's for my SX's Daily.. right around 30hz actually
    all help will be rewarded with an E-High five

    Wish you would have seen my for sale post a while ago. We have the same car and I have a vented box that fits perfect in our car's. 2.1 CUF per chamber tuned to 32 HZ. Look at my sig and then click on my cardomain link. The box is for sale, as I am going to do a full plexi-glass box here in the next couple of months. $125 shipped.

    Re: New box in progress need help

    Definitely get winISD or AJ designer

    Your box volume is 4.7cu ft. wo/ factoring in port or sub displacement. After displacement I am guessing about 3-3.5cu foot which is a good sized box as for port tuning...are you doing round ports or square vents? What size port/vent do you want ex 4" 3" etc.

    Again check out ngsm's enclosure guide or the12volt.coms enclosure guide both great tools.

    other than that x2 on being too tired.

    hope that helps a bit

    Re: New box in progress need help

    I used a few links and was wondering if my calcs were right

    I ended up with a 4.7cuft enclosure and around 4.4 after displacement

    I calculated that 2 slot ports 2.5w X 21L X 16.25T will tune to 32Hz

    that would tune same as 1 big port divided by 2 right?
