    obsidians box recommendation for 18

    I got a 18 obsidian and want build me a ported instead of the sealed I built now at 4cf. Obsidian recommends using a 6in diameter port for the sub. Im going slot port and found an equation to convert it and got basically 1.5in wide based on my box im going to build...little under 5cf. That seems small to me for an 18 but again im running the rated 600wrms to it because I like my dual alpine pdx setup. Obsidian seems to clearly state u should go by their recommendations...1.5in wide should be fine for port if im running rated 600 to it correct? Gona b tuned to bout 30hz...

    I would increase enclosure volume and port area.

    Re: obsidians box recommendation for 18

    Waz thinkin the same but im tryna stay at 5cf for volume. Havent built nearly enough enclosures to kno wats a good port area. I want a good all around sound but little more low end if that makes sense. Dnt want a fart box.

    50 in^2 of port would work. Can pick up an 8" sono tube from lowes/HD for like $5 and you can play with tuning too.

    Well I kno how do build n get dimensions just want to kno how a ports sq in is determined...roughly. Guess its just sound preference.

    And yea would bring ”aiden” but he not very sociable when it comes to other other dogs his size...Proly jus walk up on ur dog n put his head over ur dogs...not really tryna see sum rotts fight. Roun ppl hes cool..but will watch u.
