a real question on box construction
ok, two questions
iam building a slot ported box for a 10.
now my plans consist of a L shaped port that raps around two sides of the box.
the port is 1.75 in wide .
i was wondering about the other end of the of the port (one on the inside of box)
in my diagram i labeled the area in question with a ( x )
#1 dose the board labled ( a ) have to be 1.75in from each side ( f ) and ( c )???
#2 and dose the area (x) include in the: box volume, or port volume???

------------------------
l --------a------- x l
l l l
l l l
f l c
l l l
l l---------------------l
if you didnt understand question #1 than i will try again.
dose the gap directly below (x) have to equil the port width (1.75)?

It needs to be 1.75" from board F (to maintain consistent internal width), and more than 1.75" from C. Also, remember to factor in port end correction since you are using a wall of the box as a wall for the port.

Assuming you space everything out correctly, it would be part of the box volume. If you get board A too close to board C, then that area will act as part of the port (not what you want to have happen).
