    Slot Ported Box

    I was pretty set on building this box for two Pioneer TS-W305C/DVCs, until I heard that a slot ported box would have less port noise:

    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

    Could someone help me with plans for a similar slot ported box? I want to keep the tuning around 31hz, or possibly lower (if tuning to 31hz will keep it from playing some notes). I have 40x30x18 inches to work with. Are there any other advantages/disadvantages between tube ported/slot ported boxes?



    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

    That's okay, it can be bigger than the other box as long as it fits within 40x30x18 inches. I would like to have some usable trunk space, though.
