    ported box for RE8

    ive built plenty of boxes b4 but i usually had a plan, i dont know how to tune ports, the RE site says for a .5 cubicft tuned to 32hz.... the dont give any instruction so i dont know how to go about making the measurements right or getting the right size port so that it will be tuned at 32 hz...... is there a site that explains that stuff or can sumone hook me up with sum plans??

    thanx

    should it be tuned a little bit higher for pure SPL?

    Re: ported box for RE8

    jmac, where can i find a decent port calculator, your plans seem good, one problem, the speaker's displacement is .9 ft^3, but it that wont make much of a difference or, tune it a little high, like 33 or 34hz then thats good enough

    thanx for the help

    Re: ported box for RE8

    jmac, if i reduced the depth of the box to 10" instead of 12, how would that effect the tuning, would it make it higher or lower? if it makes it higher that would be better, i am using this sub for a midbass,(mainly sq) application

    Re: ported box for RE8

    dont worry about it, i got your formula from another thread u posted on, i figured it out. im playin around with it right now, i got it be H=10 W=14 D=14 (im trying to make it fit on my other box), with a 39"port, tuned to 37.1hz, with a net volume of i think.469, im trying to add a little sq to the 8, so i lowered a few things. only, with a width of 14. im going to have EXACTLY enough width for the sub cutout, and i dont like playing around with exactness when cutting the hole, so fixing the width to give me at least an inch and quarte like the hight, then probably ill have to increase the port length keep it tuned around 37-40hz..... i never knew how much time went into these formulas, i have a newfound respect for people that figued all this out

    thanks again though
    billy

    Re: ported box for RE8

    i got you, so the vd is different for each different style of port you have? because the reason i was getting confused was because of your post on another thread in which u said

    "If using wall as one side of the port ...

    (Hv+T)*(Wv)*(Lv-T)/1728 = Vd

    If using no walls for sides of ports ...

    (Hv+2T)*(Wv)*(Lv-T)/1728 = Vd"

    Re: ported box for RE8

    thats cool, hey, any particualrs on a box for 2 subs that share a port, like, ive seen boxes with a 2 subs and one port in the between them, its really tight lookin, is there any thing i need to add to the formulas to figure that, or just make the part of the port that they share twice as big? also a friend of mine wants a box for 4 15s, would it suffice to have 4 different ports or 2 or just one, how does that figure in?
