    well if you add another wall inside at the port going up almost to the top, to where the air only has about a 3 inch slot all the way across to get out of and then down out the port hole i think it will slam.

    ok this is going to be looking down from the top of the box, keep your design like it is but the thick black line is the wall im talking about bring it up on the inside of the box almost to the very top leaving about a 3 inch gap between it and the top lid.Box design help!!-subbox.jpg

    do not listen to this guy. pm me if you want a free design. I will need the vehicle, power, woofers, and desired results of the enclosure along with any other notes you see fit to add.

    your idea is just plain stupid. I think you are trying to talk about a 6th order but I am not quite sure.... your "wall" inside the enclosure is going to severely interfere with tuning..

    whats a 6th order ? and if i remember correct bc its been years thats just the way the vt boxes was built. its basically a big L shape in side the box. but it will be tuned high.

    Wow, I guess I have to say it.. but I agree with Danger, this guy is going to have you all jacked up on your tuning and cost you valuable airspace.
