    ?'s

    My friend abcdefg got me these port dimensions ( and I am not questioning his abilities) but was wondering if these were right. The box is 7 cubic ft and the port is 18.5x6 and I want it to be tuned to 50hz. he got depth as 11.84. Just wondering if that was right.

    well...using WinISD 0.50a6 i got the length of the port to be....8.32".

    Jmac enlightened me about 10 mins ago that WinISD pro isn't so accurate in port calculations. Seems it's about 5% off.

    I guess manual calculations would be best... refer to Jmac for proper formula.. but seeing that it give 5% longer ports, I thoguth it'd be alright to shave just a tad off.

    actually, it was 3.52" shorter than the original calculation

    I'm as boggled as you are about this matter...

    all this time I put my trust in winISD pro, thinking that it was accurate, but alas, it proves the statement: if you want something done, do it yourself.

    im curious as to what the formula is. its probably some big extensive formula....and if you're making a program to calculate the port, why would you use the wrong formula? i think that once i find the correct formula ill program something in VB...

    I don't remember the exact formula, but it wasn't that long...

    VB, excel whatever it is, if you can make a more reliable box program than winISD pro, lemme know

    well, if you can get me the exact formula, then it shouldnt be too hard to whip up a simple program...

    You can also use this formula:

    Fb= tuning freq., Av= cross sectional area of port (in in^2), Lv=length of port (in in.), Vb=enclosures net volume (in in.^3)
