Ported Boxes... All new to me
I'm building a ported box to replace my prefabbed one, which is undercubed and falling apart. I've got one all drawn up to build, but don't want to start until i get a few things clear...
1. Is 2 1/3 inches from the bottom of the box enough for a 4" port tube to breathe if not, how much room does one need?
2. Does port volume take away from the cubes of the chamber?
3. How much bracing is suggested for a divided box made of 3/4"?
4. Will 4" PVC work for a port tube until I get port tubes or should i make slot ports (which i don't have the faintest idea how to do)?
If you have anything that will help , it would be greatly appreciated.
