    15" sub bandpass box



    This is my plans for a bandpass enclosure for a 15" crossfire bmf the sealed portion is 2 cu ft. and the ported part is 3.3 cu ft but i dont know how to figure out the port. the sub calls for a 2 cu ft. sealed enclosure and a 3.15 cu ft ported enclosure. so i figured taking out the port and supports on the ported side it would even out to about 3.15 cu ft. Im using 3/4 in mdf. I dont know whether i want to do a port going into the cabin or facing the cabin or facing the trunk. Im thinking about doing it into the cabin and doing an amp rack behind it. its going into a ford zx2. I dont know how to figure out the size of the port. I was thinkin either using a side for length but I might do cylinder ports into the cabin. Which would sound better square ports or cylinder ports?? Im going for SQ and not so much spl. I was thinking of tuning the box to 30 hz.
    any help appreciated.

    P.S. anyone know of any good box building programs?? Im still using the old school pen, paper, and math skills.

    Re: 15" sub bandpass box

    why should the sealed be bigger and the ported be smaller?? and wouldnt 50 be too test tone style?? it is my daily driver and how do you figure out the port size dimensions?

    Re: 15" sub bandpass box

    you dont know that much about bandpass do ya. also what strikes me as odd is that your goin for SQ and not SPL, wich 90% of bandpass are for SPL aplications. also taking the subs ported and sealed recomended enclosure volumes and putting them together dosnt make it the ideal band pass enclosre volumes. my advice for you is build a seald box or a low tuned ported box for MAX SQ

    4th Orders can sound sick if done right.

    80s design should play REAL smooth.

    Re: 15" sub bandpass box

    im still lost in trying to figure out the port size deminsions. Im going to try 3.5 sealed and 1.8 ported tuned to 50hz like 80's design. I want to use one or 2 3" pieces of pvc pipe or maybe just one bigger one. Can anyone help me figure out what the port length should be or know of any program that could help me out on this box?

    80

    Having the bigger sealed chamber is better for making a flatter response, so listen to 80. If you truly want a bandpass for SQ purposes, that would be a great setup. The nice big sealed chamber will give it great response and woofer cone control down to any frequency and the small ported chamber will keep the bass tight and not sloppy so it should do really well for SQ purposes and still get hella loud.
