1. ## calculating my port can anyone tell me if this is right??

am i anywhere close to getting this right or do i just sound stupid

so my box is 32"wide 30"deep and 15"high i calculated the volume to be 14400sq inches and 100sqft
and im using 3/4" thick mdf does that mean i takeout that out of the volume?

and on the calculator this is what i put- enclosure volume-100sq ft its gonna be 1 square port tuned too 33hz idk whether to put slot port or not cause its against the wall but it dosent go along the whole wall cause its gunna be 5x5 inches then for the height- 5 and width- 5 cause i dident know exactly what that ment and it gave me length of the port to be -3.51 so is that how deep i should make the port going into my box?
so can someone tell me if this is right and whats the port length and if i put the right calculations on please i want to build this box very soon
AND also should i make my port 5x5 or should i just make it a slot port going along the whole side

With listed dimensions above. Your box has a NET value of 6.79ft^3. NOT INCLUDING SUBS, BRACING, AND PORT DISPLACEMENT

30.5x28.5x13.5=11734.875/1728=6.79

you have to account for the volume displacement of the sub(s) bracing and anything else internally. Most subs have .1-.25 cubic ft of displacement
