    Trying to make box as small as possible for TC LMS-R12

    Ideal ported applicaiton TC Sounds says:

    2.5 cubes
    31" port length
    2x4 port area
    tuned to 30htz

    12.6" diameter
    11.2" cutout
    7.2" depth

    My measurements are
    42" max width
    19" max height
    30" max depth

    I would prefer the box use the full 42" width and as much of the height as necessary but keep it as shallow as possible so I can still put stuff in the back of the trailblazer. For some reason though when messing with the RE box calculator I can't seem to make it right.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Box Designers; how does this sound?

    Width: 42"
    Height: 18"
    Depth: 10"
    Wood: .75"
    Square port height: 16.5"
    Square port width: 2"
    Square port length: 7.25"
    Square port length 2: 20"
    Total port length: 31"
    Port Diameter: 6.48
    Square port area: 33
    Box Volume: 2.68 prior to displacement
    Freq: 30.4

    Driver is a 12" TC LMS-R. I am trying to keep this box as shallow as possible as it will be placed against the back seats in the rear of a Trailblazer SS. Hoping with only 10" of depth while using max width I can retain some cargo room.

    use a 4" aero port with an elbow. slot ports are too big for enclosures smaller than 2.5 cubic feet.



    Here is my feedback Thread: http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showth...ght=fasfocus00

    Well this box is just over 2.5 cubes and looks like the port isnt too long where it will interfere with the depth mounting of the sub, no?
