    Box for sa12

    Right now i have a box that i am making a new front for the dimensions are 13h/27w/11.5d i want the box to be tuned in the 32-36 hz range to get it in that range with my current box i ill have to make the the port one inch in width to keep around a 1.5 net volume. Im powering the sa12 d4 with 600watts at 2ohms. This is just a temp(since some expenses have come up) set up so perfection isn't completely important to me but i don't want it to sound terrible. But anyways i was wondering if the 1 inch width will sound terrible due to chaffing(I think thats what it is). Sorry if I sound jumbled I really don't know much about this. On torres the 14in l port is about 36 hz and on re its about 32.

    That just isn't enough space for that woofer man. A port that small is going to not work very well.

    How about this one i though I'd leave some room for reinforcement, and what kind of reinforcement do you recommend. Also just to be clear the three port walls is an l port right or would that be two common walls.
    Edit: I was also wondering about sub placement i was thinking about placing it in the center of the box with the port on the left but what would sound best and how would placement effect the port.
