ok i have a question on boxes. are boxes louder when they are bigger? also does material play a big role in boxes? ive seen posts with mdf plexisgalss and fibergass, which types sound louder bandpass or ported ex. plus if you port a box that is currently 0.81cuft. would it be louder? because i have a 0.81cuft box i made a little while ago and was wondering if i should port it to get it sounding louder. if i do. does it make a differece what shape the port hole is? ( round or rectangular?) also if i do port it where should the ports be located?
ALSO- i was wondering where the ports should be because i had this crazy idea that maybe if you place the box in a certain direction the air coming out of the ports could hit the amp to try and cool it down... am i crazy or can that ever work out?
