    Help with Variable tuning wall

    We have never built a variable tuned box of this caliber before. the box will be 38" high 39" wide and 22" deep (outside dimensions). the sides back top and bottom will be 2 layers thick and 3 layer face of 3/4". the inside will have PVC cut down for all corners and fully glassed inside.

    What i need to figure out is how to be able to have at least 3 different tuning options, but easy enough to be able to drive to a comp then switch. example drive to comp tuned to 30hz and then retune to ~60 for spl purpose.

    I will be running 2 18" upgraded DC LVL 4 18" off a Single DC 5k and later using the same wall to house 2 18" LVL 5 and 2 5ks.

    Please any ideas would be help full! also I believe we will be doing the subs across the top and port at bottom.

    How fast do you need to be able to switch? I'd think a plate bolted to the box with the port in it could work. I have also seen people use several ports, and plugging some to change/lower tuning.



    HU - Pioneer
    Front Stage - Old school MB Quartz run off a JL e2150
    Rear Stage - Stock - well one works, LOL
    Sub - Tang Band 740C in between the front seats
    Sub Amp - A tiny Kenwood. - because it fits under the seat.
    Total Spent on everything $50.

    well basically i want it to take less than 10 minutes for a switch. but from everything i have figured out with aeros wont give me enough port area when tuning lower for these subs as they want a min of 16" per cube.

    Coarse this is for 12s but should give you an idea of a system that is easy to design, build, and change tuning on while in the vehicle.
