    Lets talk ports?

    K.. I'm having a lot of trouble designing a ported box. Everytime I think I've got it, I'm wrong. Is there a simple equation that determines frequency? Such as.. Volume of box / volume of port?

    I've seen those little web page calculators that determine round port volume, but I **** at math. I can't figure out the same-volume demensions of a slot port. There an equation for this as well?

    volume of a cylinder is lengh x area

    V= L x A

    Volume of a box is the Height x width x depth

    V= H x L x W

    Find the volume of your round port and then use the size slot port you want to make and that will tell you your lengh.

    Tuning freq. is determined by the cross area of the poprt, not the actual volume. Here is a formula that shoe you the way...how simple it is depends on your level of math.
