    Box depth/ Port width help

    Dimensions =

    13h x 16w x 17d

    Two questions:

    1. Is there a rule to the depth? Like a depth to width ratio limit?
    2. If I change the port width to 1.25, will port noise be introduced?

    The only room I have to play with a little is the depth, unless I change port width from 1.5 to 1.25.
    I am befuddled...

    depth of box and port width are not relavent to one another. usaully about 15sqin/cuft of port area is good but what sub do you have? are you using any kind of port calculator to get the port length?

    Re: Box depth/ Port width help

    Im just using Torres. The box is for an SA-10 d2, powered by an mbq onx1.1000d. The dimensions are tight because its going in a baby shoe sized Chevy Sonic hatch. Im trying to get tuning down to 34hz. The only way I can do that is if I come up to 18" on the depth or close the port width to 1.25 instead of 1.5, then shorten the length. I would much rather shorten the port width if possible.

    Thanks for the quick response too btw.

    If your about 1.5cuft i would think you would want around 1.75" width. are you trying to avoid making an L port? i would think that 1.25" is not enough- the port is 11.5" high, correct?

    I just went back out and re-measured my hatch. I think I will be ok with what I came up with now. I dont know why I was confused lol. Its been a long day I guess.

    This should work right?

    Re: Box depth/ Port width help

    I could be wrong but since you have sub up port up checked, i think the depth (-1.5) would be the height limit on the port. Otherwise for 11.5 it would be a front, rear, or side facing port.

    Atleast thats what i did when I designed my box

    I have no clue why those were checked. For some reason unchecking them made no difference.

    I think it's because volume and port length and area stayed the same. It all looks good to me. Remember to use lots of good quality wood glue
