    review and correct my porting tutorial please

    for all those out there who know exactally how to create the port and the box to go with it, could you read over this, and tell me if anything is wrong, or sounds funny.

    constructive critism only please. im trying to explain it in LAMENS terms, so that people will actually understand it.

    please no flaming if somthing is wrong, just try and correct it.

    thanks.

    I liked it and thought it did a good job of getting the basics out there. I guess you could go deeper into the benefits of tuning low vs high and why SPL is tuned higher and why a lower tuned box is known more for SQ than the higher tuned boxes and what happens to the air pressure at tuning etc but that is more acoustics and sound wave tech jargon than what might be needed.
    Great job

    thanks man. i could have sworn i missed part somewhere though. but i cant figure out where.

    i may go deeper into *why* you should tune low, but ill write that in a seperate article so that they dont get off track when learning how to do it, ya know?

    Re: review and correct my porting tutorial please

    Fs - the tuning frequency of the box or port - measured in square inches, in^2
    FS is not measured in sq in.
    Vb - the enclosures net volume - (length x base x height) measured in eaither cubic inches or cubic feet, in^3 or ft^3
    Net volume should be explained as internal measurement after all displacements. -and- what about measuring in Liters...?
    Lv - the linear (down the middle) length of the port - measured in inches - in
    Explain about measureing through turns (L & "Labyrinth" Ports grow long very fast because of this).
    Av - the cross-sectional area (port mouth) of the port - (base x height) measured in square inches, in^2
    What about Pi*R^2?

    On your box diagram you didn't account for the (3/4"?) width of Port Board 1 when you 'measured' "Y." -and- It looks like "X" only measure to the interior of the baffle. It should measure right to the atmosphere (outside).

    When I click onthe "Port Calculator" link the result is:
    404 Error Page
    The page cannot be found
    The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable
    No offense, I would Just feel that If I'm putting up a public page I would try to have it all as close to perfect as I could get it.

    Hope this all helps.
