    Are you looking to build a whole new box? It would be less work just building a new one rather then modifiying the old box.

    Re: round port to slotted

    To keep the same port area with those dimensions, you'll have a port that's 12" tall and .58" in width... Not ideal by any means.

    If I could design boxes I would gladly help, but I haven't figured it out yet

    Re: round port to slotted

    Here we go hows this.

    All these measurments are to scale and would need 3/4 mdf to make correctly
    The port in my drawing is not correct length

    Re: round port to slotted

    FYI some people will disagree with your port dimensions due to it being so tall and skinny.

    That's why I stick with sealed boxes. Get the right volume and you're golden.
