    Port Help Again

    I asked for help on my last box but i can't get it to fit in my trunk so now i have a new box and i need help with the port size.

    the box INTERNALLY measures: 14.875 W x 12.5 H x 14.5 D

    it is a box for a single 12... can some one help me with the port size?

    I want it to be tuned to 30 hertz the internal volume is:

    1.5602394386574074074074074074074 cu ft

    the port face is 14.875 x 3

    TIA


    I know the formula.. i just can't seem to get the right answer.



    Lv = Av*1.84*10^8/[Vb*1728*(Fb/0.159)^2] - 0.823*sqrt(Av)

    Lv is port length (what your solving for)
    Av is your port area (height x width of the port face)
    Vb is the internal volume of your box
    Fb is the tuning frequency you want

    subtract half of your port width from your port length(Lv) to get physical Lv



    help plz

    Re: Port Help Again

    with winisd it shows that with a 2x3 port face 10" long i will have a tuning of about 30 hertz

    Is this right?

    Re: Port Help Again

    I got ~80" long port when done by hand.....
    BBP pumped out....~84".....
    id probably just go with lest port area especially if it is just for 1 12" cuz that would be like a 4 cube net box b4 displacment......

    Re: Port Help Again

    Heres how i break the formula down.....
    first of all to make things less confusing just use the cubic inchecs and skip the * 1728 in the formula...cuz that makes it more confusing....so for ur box ur Vb is 2696.09

    its pretty easy tho....
    multiply ur port area (Av) by 1.84*10^8
    then divide that by

    ur desired frequecy * 6.2893 (same as Fb/.159) squared, times ur volume again.....

    then minus .823 * the square root of ur port area


    So.....the formula i use....which is only slightly diffrent then urs looks like this


    Lv= ((Av(1.84*10^8)/(6.2893*Fb)^2 * Vb)) - .823(sqrtAV)


    so for ur problem u get


    X= (44.625 * 1.84*10^8) (= 8211000000) / (6.2893*30)^2 *2696.09 (=95980170.53)

    8211000000/95980170.53 = 85. 5489
    85.5489 - (.823*(sqrt44.625) (=5.4978)

    85.5489 - 5.4978 = ~80.5.....but i just round to whole numbers because i usually figure that the diffrence is to small to worry about....i just dont think its necisarry (sp? lol) to get too exact with it......

    yes, but your NET volume will be severely decreased.

    Re: Port Help Again

    would i get close to a 30 hertz tuning if i used a 2x3x 10 long port?

    Re: Port Help Again

    2x3 port is toooo smalll even for a single 12
    but to answer if its right or not



    x = ( we want this to be ~10) ((6*1.84*10^8)(=1104000000)/((6.2893*30)^2 * 2696.09( = 95980170.53)......1104000000/95980170.53= ~11.5 - (.823(sqrt6) = (2.01)....so 11.5-2.01 = 9.49 final Lv = 9.49"
    so yes 10" is close enough to yield ~30 hz tuning......
