    Box, look alright?

    This box is for a Fi SSD 12, around 2.2 @33Hz
    46.5 sq" of port area and about 46.75" long
    Does this look alright/ will it work? This is the first box I've designed
    In particular, will the short bend in the port inside the box work out?

    Arent the corners of the port gonna mess it up? You should make the port the same width all the way throughout, and those corners will make it smaller there.

    you fail geometry? Those braces are in there to so that it WILL be a uniform width...

    How does that work?

    EDIT...nevermind, I see it now. Either way, its not gonna be the same throughout the port unless you made them rounded.

    You are go for VBA.

So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.

    That's true, however having those braces in there is better than nothing

    If they weren't there that area would go from 3" wide to 4.5"
    It isn't uniform through the whole corner though, that would require an arc at each corner

    Re: Box, look alright?

    seams like a lot of port area, i would do a 2 or a 2.5 wide port, that think looks like 3.5 or so, it will also cut down on port length

    Re: Box, look alright?

    Looks okay.. it will definitely work. Personally, I would cut down on some of the port area as to cut down on the port length. Smaller box ftw!
