sub box design questions
Hi - A couple questions about designing boxes:
1) I understand that there's software out there that can help with designing. Anybody have a link for some?
2) My current setup distorts badly at medium-hi volume levels, and I don't believe it's the speaker or the amp. The boxes are only 0.38 cu ft volume, with 10" Legacy subs. I understand that 0.75 cu ft is normally required - can a box that's too small cause this phenomenon?
3) Can the boxes be ported to improve sound quality? How do I figure out the required dimensions?
