Just wondering who uses programs to find out port calculations for their box, etc?
I have been toying with WinISD pro and the BCAE page here: http://www.bcae1.com/spboxnew2.htm to try and get some box calculations.
I like WinISD because it gives me estimates for freq response etc, and I'm not sure where I want to tune a 12" XXX in about a 3 cuft box for good boom (the chick wants it to be LOUD) but also good low end. I'm thinking 31-32 Hz, but I'm not sure... thats another story.
I also heard somewhere that WinISD is not the best for port dimensions! Is this true?
I've seen the equations on the internet, is it best to Ti-89 the whole thing? Or is the BCAE site pretty darn good?
Ports get really complicated, and I think I'm going to be using round ports (Blow through) but agh, I can't decide on what program to use if any, because I would like to make the box only once, since it is pretty much going to be a one-time custom install, and its hard to find 1" sheets for MDF without buying bulk!
Thanks for any input, and I know people will probably have different opinions on this, I'm just trying to get a feel for what people do and do not like.
Back to searching for more box programs!
