Ive always like the looks and functionability of a fiberglass box. but since i decided to buy some comps i am forced to buy a weaker sub (atlas with 400 watts instead of avalanche with 1200 watts) so ported is almost manditory to get the bass im looking for.
i was hoping to fiberglass a box onto the wheel well of my jeep, so its flush against the right side of my car. (cant do with a mdf box because of shape) So i was thinking of have an entirely fiberglass box, or fiberglass the base, and have the other flat sides mdf. doesnt seem too hard that way cause then i dont have to worry about the appearence of the fiberglass (wont be seen) and i dont have to worry about making the mdf rings for the sub.
I read that a pretty effecient way of porting a fiberglass box is to put packing penuts in it. but then what do i do to find volume? put the penuts in a square box then measure that?
I also found this port that would help me out too. http://www.subzoneusa.com/snake_tube.htm what do you think about those?
thanks for your help. all comments, suggestions, and tips are welcome.
