    How can i tell how much volume or cu ft is effected with port.

    How can i tell how much volume or cu ft is effected with port.-photo-3-.jpgHow can I determine how much space or area a port takes up in a sub box as far as volume?
    Is there a certain calculation, do I add or subtract volume from the box. Any help would be appreciated.

    You might want to rethink that design

    You measure the port and then use simple math to figure it out. But if the box is being built, then you should already know what the volume for your port is.



    Headunit - Pioneer DEH-P8300UB
    Subs - None
    Sub Amp - 2x Crescendo 3kwp
    Front Stage - Polk Audio db651 Coaxial
    Front Amp - None

    Box is being built, but not by me. I was asking the question for my own knowledge.

    Thanks for the reply, I'll keep that in concideration when I have a vehicle that does not require the need for a wedge configured box.

    About the same as your comments, no worries its cool. Not everyone is up to the challenge or has the knowledge to make a wedge box sound decent.
    Thanks for the help

    Box looks fine to me...and OP just your simple L x W x D will tell you port dimensions. If you use an aero port it's pi * d * length. Make sure to divide by 1728 to see what it is in cubic feet
