    can someone check my measurements please

    ok, so i just finnished my box measurements and laid them out on the wood to be cut. and since its dark i decided to model it in Sketchup because im bored. long story short, i think im a retard.... my box dimensions are 20X15x10.5. the sub going in it is SPLaudios prototype 8(SA-8 basket basicly, gives you a size refrence). now im using a 3' aero(internal diameter, .25" wall thickness, outside Diameter is 3.5" that is 14" long(not including possible flare). the problem im running into is the "keep your port a port width away from all walls" rule. box layout is in the pics below.

    with the current "sub centered and at the bottom, port centered at the top" settup i dont think i will have clearance for the port to fit.

    can i just shift the sub to one side and the port to the other and be fine? of do i need to re-draw this ****?

    Matt

    P.S. please excuse the not to scale, drawn by a 4 year old, paint drawing....

    oh, and when i model it in sketchup the port ends up being right under the sub cutout, hence why i think im a retard.....

    That sketch is legit... lol

    An L-Port box is one way to get more port area while keeping a relatively small box. Standard round/square port boxes have to take into account the tube itself + the limited area you can devote to a tube/hole in your box.

    L-port box calc: RE AUDIO - Box Calculator

    Re: can someone check my measurements please

    ****... so i cant just shift the sub to one side and the port to the other? ill have to make the box a fair bit larger to get 32hz with a slot port. plus it will have to be a 1" X 9" slot and thats not very optimal. im going to try and fudge the dimensions some more.

    hell i may end up just making part of the port external since im tired of designing boxes. lol

    oh, what would optimal port orientation be in a situation like this? id like it to be sub upfire and port sidefire of sub frontfire port sidefire.

    Re: can someone check my measurements please

    ok, so i made a cardboard box and laid out the port and sub. the following pictures show the 2 ways i can lay it out. there is technicly a 3rd, but that involves sub front/port side. the sub just moves from the top to the side opposite the port tube centered.

    Attachment 26539195Attachment 26539196Attachment 26539197Attachment 26539198Attachment 26539199Attachment 26539200

    you guys think the offset port/sub will be good enough? or do i really have to re-design and re-lay out the box? and they arent exactly to scale, but they are a fairly accurate representation.

    with the sub and port centered the port is ~2" below the sub and the mouth ends up almost at the pole vent.

    with the offset there is no overlap. the port is a port width off the side of the box and 4" from the bottom of the box.

    Matt

    PS @double 07 ; last time on the call out double. lol
