    Are those internal dimensions the chamber or including the port? If it's the chamber then you should up your port area. Rule of thumb is 12-16 square inches of port area for every cubic foot.

    You're looking at somewhere between 29-31Hz. Personally I would have bumped up the port area a little bit, too little port area and you introduce port noise from high air velocity. But, you just about meet the 12 square inches per cube so I guess you'll be fine.




  6. Thanks Chris Bell thanked for this post

    Alright then you can do this. Make your port 4" wide, that will help with your port area, but shrink down your length to 25 inches and it will make your tuning 33hz just about on the dot.

    FYI you can use this site for calculating tuning: Car Audio - PORT Size Calculations and Formulas for WOOFER and Subwoofer BOXES

    Use the calculator on the bottom. Select the port shape to "square" but keep slot port at "no" (it messes up the numbers sometimes...). For the box volume you enter in the chamber (not including port)

    Re: what is this box tuned to

    to change the port from 3.5 to 4 inches wide i would have to take the box outta my car because there not enough room to do it inside it and dont know if the box will ever come out in one piece it was rather hard to get in lol (second post describes what it took to get in but doesnt say how much of a pain it was literally threw my back out getting it in there
