I have been checking out this board for a couple of days and you guys seem to know your stuff so I am here to ask for your help. I recently built my first sealed enclosure and I think I did a pretty good job, but I am not getting the deep bass extention that I did when I had a ported box. I have never designed a ported box before so this is all new to me, I put some specs together and I would appreciate it if someone would check my math to see if I am on the right track. The dimensions are:
Port-2 in. wide x 16 in. high x 24 in. long
I am looking for tuning around 30 hz. The port will be opening on the side of the box as this gives me the best chance to construct a straight port. The box is 3.5 cubic in. before displacement of the subs and port wall for a total of 3.3 cubes total, 1.6 cubes per sub. This is going by the manufacturer's recommendations.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks in advance.
