    New to design... bass box pro?

    Trying to build a couple simple boxes with bass box pro and wanted to know if there are some good tutorials out there for learning the technical aspects of box design so I can understand the software.

    Thanks much

    Lots and lots of research and testing is your best teacher...

    Some basics can be understood by plugging numbers into a more simple program like WinISD or the L-Port Box program (search google).

    In general, tuning around 28hz or around Fs will give you a pretty flat response.
    Port tuning will give you a peak that is also affected by cabin gain. Cabin gain moves your tuning up.
    QTS helps you determine if a sub is more suitable for ported or sealed enclosures, amongst other specs.

    Some good info:
    Car Audio Subwoofer Enclosures
    speaker basics

    Harman/Kardon 12-speaker System Option + Dayton HO D4 10" and PPI Ion 650.1 in sealed box
    And many more car audio goodies in storage
