    How's This Look?

    Box plans for two Pioneer TS-W305C/DVC Subwoofers:

    External Dimensions:
    Height - 15"
    Width - 30"
    Depth - 18"
    Thickness - 0.75" (3/4" MDF)

    One 4" diameter x 8" long port

    Net Volume - 3.2 ft^3
    Tuning Frequency - 31hz


    Does this box sound good? If so, what should the cuts be for the MDF? Does it matter where I put the holes for the subs and the port? I'm thinking I'll have the subs facing the rear, and the port firing towards the back seat.



    New setup in the works:
    Vehicle: 1999 Ford Windstar
    Head Unit: Pioneer Premier DEH-P860MP
    Signal Processing: Profile Q100 3-Way active crossover, set to 80hz and 3.5khz
    High Pass: the legendary Aura tweeters powered by a Pioneer GM-3000T
    Band Pass: Ascendant Audio 6.5" Poly Midwoofers powered by a Pioneer GM-5000T
    Low Pass: Elemental Designs 19Ov.2 in 3ft^3 tuned to 30hz, powered by a Power Acoustik 2APC-1400

    Sounds good to me....I would have a bit more port area though, you might get some port noise, and you deffinately will not acheive maximum potential.

    Re: How's This Look?

    How long would each of the 4" ports need to be to achieve 31hz tuning?

    Re: How's This Look?

    Could someone tell me how to make a slot ported box, tuned to around 31hz, that will fit within 40x30x18 inches?

    Re: How's This Look?

    Now I'm thinking I'd rather tune a bit lower, just to make sure my sub can play everything. I know some songs play below 30hz, what would they sound like in a 31hz ported box?

    So, do I make the ports stick 6" out of the box? Why wouldn't I just use 2 ports?

    get some 90 degree pvc bends. if u have 6 in. sticking otside the box the tuning would be even lower.

    and the more port area ya have the less likeliness of having port noise. trust me.

    hell ya might wanna put 4 4'' pvc in there, but then the ports would be even longer.

    Re: How's This Look?

    If I use L-bends, how do I measure the total length of the port?

    place a string in the middle of the bend, cut it, take it out and measure it.
