I am thinking about building a vented box, but I am also considering sealed. Main things I am looking for are accuracy and sound quality. This is for my room, not my trunk. I am willing to paypal $5-10 if someone can give me a really nice plan. Should I go vented or sealed? I have already bought these parts so that is what I will be using. If I go vented, I would either go slot port or flared pvc.
Prefered size range is 2 cubic feet to 4 cubic feet, possibly larger if I like the design.
Material is birch plywood, not mdf. I don't like cutting mdf. I will reinforce of course.
Will a slot port give me the accuracy I need for home audio?
