    Ugh, this keeps popping up everywhere, "I made an enclosure, tested it, then I added 45's and tested it, and it scored lower." Hmmm wonder why, perhaps because adding 45's removes net volume?

    Re: Couple quick port questions.

    I've never seen a test with 2 boxes with exactly the same internal volume, one with 45's accounted for in the design and one without

    it's always adding them after like you said

    Re: Couple quick port questions.

    Thanks for the input guys!

    Still debating on if I am going to bother, it is just for daily driving. Never will be measured, and honestly if it is such a close call I don't think it is going to be worth my time.

    No one is going to see it or even know the difference regardless.

    I am doubling my power as well, so regardless it is going to be louder!

    While your statement is correct, how much volume do you think a few 45's take up? Not enough to drop .6 I can tell you that...

    Doing the 45's will remove approx .18 ish of a cube for my plan. That only adjusts my tuning like .3 Hz... I am most likely going to do pic 2 as it is not that hard and I feel it will be better.

    Re: Couple quick port questions.

    Well I built it. Won't have the sub for two weeks but that's ok.

    6.22 Net, 4.03 after port and sub displacement tuned at 34hz.

    First time using carpet on a box, so be gentle. I decided to carpet inside the port as well. First time using all thread style terminals. I did not want to attempt soldering 8 gauge wire to the radioshack style terminal you cut out the square for and mount on the box. I figured these will be more applicable due to the power going through them.

    Decided to go with pic 1. I figured out that putting the 45 in the corner (at the right distance) keeps the port at 5" wide, otherwise it got to 7" in the corner. I know I personally will not notice the difference with the other part having a 45 so I didn't bother.

    The circle aint bad for a jigsaw huh! LOL I hate cutting sub holes.
