    Vented box question... HELP?!?!

    So I have the specs for my particular sub. It is a 12 that will require 2.0 cubic ft, it has a design for a square box with dimensions and a slot vent tuned to the correct FQ. My question is that a square/rectangle box will not work for my situation. So if I keep the same amount of airspace with a different shaped box can I still use their vent specs?

    The runner has great acoustics. Not looking for crazy SPL as I know it is unattainable with my setup but I do want the low tones apparent and clean. I'm building a box that will be in the passenger side that will go from the floor up over the wheelwell kinda shaped like an "L". The sub is a SVC 4ohm sub.

    Yeap, as long as the box has the same amount of cu/ft net, you may use their port specs.

    Re: Vented box question... HELP?!?!

    Cool, thanks a lot! I've also heard of aero ports, is it worth my time and money? Or should i just make the slot vent since I'll be building the box anyway and will have the material (wood) on hand? thx again...

    Re: Vented box question... HELP?!?!

    Kinda wanted to have a clean unassuming box that was more or less out of the way. I do a lot of camping/offroading so I need to retain "some" space back there... Idk what I'm going to end up with but it will be built Sunday. Rest assured that I will post pics and dimensions when done. I heard from one person that factory port specs can be used if the overall airspace is the same. I guess that's all I needed to hear to tackle this project! Haha
