First off, I"m no carpenter, but I do have access to all the need tools (table saw, router, ect). I want to build a 3.25 cf @ 38 hz. I've wrestling with different enclosure calculators and each are comming up with different port lengths. Its making me My dimensions are (H)14.5"x(W)37"x(D)16.5. I have room to play with the depth if needbe. http://www.reaudio.com/speaker_box/LPort_Box_Calc.html is the only one that seems to be matching what I'm after. Still having trouble with the port, I have to make it 4.25" wide to make 37.99 HZ, I'm not sure if this too wide or not, I was thinking it should be like 3.5" wide. Anyone give me some advice.
It doesnt have to be exactly 3.25cf, but I do want it more that 3(what kicker recommends). Their design is for 1400wrms, Im gonna be pushing around 1700wrms with my rockford fosgate type rf x7. I had a 12" L7 few years back w/ a bd1000.1 on it and it was ridiculously loud in a 2000 grand am (yeah I know it was overkill) I ended up tweakin' the bass gain a lil to much one night with some friend in the car and smoke the voice coil, (that'll teach me to try and show off) but my brother currently has the box I had, I'll post up some pics this weekend. Thanks for any help guys.
