1. ## Box tuning

From my understanding, the tuning of the box is determined during the building process. My question is, is there a way to figure out a box's tune after its been built? Might be a dumb question but ohhh well.

2. ## Re: Box tuning

yes... just figure out the dimensions of the box (internal cubic), and then the dimensions of the port... and that will give you your tuning

3. ## Re: Box tuning

so say like 1.5 cubes in each chamber (2 chambers) and a port thats about 16x4 just ballparking

4. ## Re: Box tuning

you'd also need the depth of the port... then i could figure your tuning

I am not meaning to jack this thread, it is some info I am looking for.

mast240, what about a form fitting box? I have a stock sub box that my car came with that I just want to replace the sub. I don't even know the cu is of the box because of the odd shape of it.

6. ## Re: Box tuning

for odd shapes you divide it up into regular shapes and get an approximate area.. triangles squares circles etc..

7. ## Re: Box tuning

yea... for odd shaped box's, its more of an approximation.... if you wanted to find EXACT size, and the box is plastic, like yours, you could always use water to find out the exact size... 7.5 gal = 1 ft cubed... just make sure its 1. completely sealed, and 2. you dry it out COMPLETELY before re-installing it, 3. theres no internal circuitry that could get fried from the water (i.e. stock internal amp)

8. ## Re: Box tuning

ok so once i get those measurements, how do you calculate the frequency?

9. ## Re: Box tuning

its a nice LONG equation... but there are a ton of calculators out there that u can use... just Google box tuning calculator... THE12VOLT.COM has some nice ones

10. ## Re: Box tuning

mast240, i got as close as I can with it. It is about .15 cuft. This is a sealed box too.

11. ## Re: Box tuning

ok... i guess it had an 8 in it stock?

12. ## Re: Box tuning

Yes, and a 8" is going back in.

13. ## Re: Box tuning

ok... so what are you asking?

14. ## Re: Box tuning

What are the hz of the box so I will have the sub tuned right?

15. ## Re: Box tuning

if its a sealed box, there is no tuning bro
