just getting construction all finished on my first attempt at a ported enclosure and i wanted to see what your guys honest opinions where on it... the box is for my FI BL 15 re-coned by PSI with 3 medium 8 inch spiders and CF dust cap. sub rated at 17-2000 RMS.. it will be connected to a crescendo 3kwp at 2 ohm for daily (at least for break in
) over all dimensions are w32xd23xh14 double baffle 3/4 birch sub up port driver side (but with the large trunk in my 04 impala i will be able to turn the box and point the port anywhere) the port is 3 molded 4 inch aeros at 23.5 inches in total length with the port left at this length by my calculations i am left with exactly 3.75 cubes and about 32-33 hz tuning.. initially my plan was to cut all three ports down to around 18 which would put box volume at about 3.9 then i could block one port for daily to drop the tuning but i decided to leave it for now and see how i like it, then i can cut it later if i want.. one question i have is what benefits or losses do i get with more port area?
a few pics thus far
this picture kind of shows the baffle
