    Ported Box Question

    How do you "tune" a ported box? What is involved, and what is the result of different frequencies? The lower it's tuned, what happens? Thanks




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    hmmm okay, I just read about what tuning equates too, but I still haven't found out HOW to tune a port, or does it just come a certain way?

    you "tune" a port with the port's diameter and it's length. the tuning ( i believe) is also based on box volume. again, i believe, the longer the port and the bigger the diameter of the port, the lower the frequency. i could be wrong on the last part, any help? i have just read the suggested box sizes for my subs, and going by it, what i said above is correct. i'd still like to hear from someone with a little more knowledge though.

    to sum up my manufactorer recommondations:
    the bigger the sub, the bigger the box, the bigger the port, the lower the frequency( in most cases)

    i forget the website,but if you use a search engine, and look for subwoofer enclosures, you will find automatic calculators to determine box size, port diameter and length, as well as tuning frequencies.



    good luck and good listening!
