    ported box

    Im currently building a box for an audiobahn 15" natural excursion sub with 600 watts rms...dimensions 16.5x13x24 out of 3/4 mdf (bout 2.3 cubes of airspace i think?). Im planning on adding either one or two round ports, but i have no idea if i should put one or two, or what size ports would help make this box sound better... any suggestions would be appreciated!

    well i ended up making just one, 3.5 inches by 8 inches (supposed to make it 35hz i hope...??)
    it was a circle port
    i guess ill just have to wait til its installed to see if it sounds good..

    no i am just wondering about all this box volume guessing and where they got 3.5 inch pipe from unless they bought real port pipe from liek parts express... someone shoulda told them PVC works great

    "about x cubes" dude to get a good sounding box you gotta know these things... the diff in a 3.5 and 4.5 cubic foot box as far as response and tuning goes can be nite and day

    and it's 10 buck ty heheehe
