I've decided to try a ported enclosure for my sa-10 just for kicks.
I'm thinking 1.0ft^3 tuned to around 33hz.
I'm not set on 33hz, it's somewhat of a guess as to what may sound good - I'm going for sq more than spl and listen to all genres so I need it to give me the accurate punch of rock as well as the lows in rap.
My box is limited to a size of 8"d x 13h x 33"w
will pretty much be right up against the rear shelf of the car behind the passenger seats in a porsche 911 so I was thinking it would be better to go with a side firing aeroport over a rectangular port.
My box would measure roughly 8"d x 12.5"h x 31"w, making it 1.12ft^3 after sub displacement, this would be subject to change based on the displacement of the aeroport (which I don't know yet).
Using PSP's port calculator, with a 4" aeroport, I would need a port length of 25.8" to tune to 33hz. I'm afraid the sub would interfere with a port this long.
So, am I on the right track here or just way off base?
Can aeroports be configured to be that long?
