    seems to me youll have to "mimick" the curve from the front to the back...if that makes sense?

    Maybe not...my first box was a wedge style with the port firing through the slanted piece, so it was shorter on top and longer on the bottom...sounded good

    im sure it will still sound fine...but your tuning will not be what you want with just basic calculations

    Well yeah, I had my box designed by someone on here and I have no idea how he calculated the tuning...lol, who knows what that box was actually tuned to, I just know it sounded good

    i get what u mean by mimicking the curve, in other words instead of a straight back it should have the curve also

    Yes, so you have a uniform port length

    but if it sounds like crap i could always just cap the port up and go sealed, im running cvxs so they like sealed or ported

    why couldn't you have just a regular slotted port? or used aero's?

    other than that it would sound fine, might not be exactly the tuning you would wanted but it wont be far off

    Your second picture should be exactly what you want if you do it right, that will, give you the tuning you want.
