    Icon8 Somehow, messed up sloted port width

    So unfortunately, my dimensions were a bit off and one of the port width is a little off.

    For instance, the first slot width is 2.5, then it folds and its 2.60, and once again it folds for the third time and the width is 2.15. This would mess up my tuned frequency right? Any solution?

    Or is it not a big deal really?

    This IS my first enclosure and I'm starting to get into building enclosures and being an audiophile.Somehow, messed up sloted port width-camerazoom-20130506211059622.jpg

    Not really. The only thing those 90's are gonna do is add some noise. With the two widths being smaller all together it's going to lower your tuning. How much idk.
    You can average the widths and use that along with the length to get the tuning.

    will be fine for a daily box on low/med power. If you're "that" worried knock out the last 2 pieces and make it an "L" port...

    Unwanted noise? Or good noise?

    Why would you add polyfill if it has port noise?
