Default box tuning and volume

Im new to building boxes and trying to figure some things out. One question i have is with the tuning of a box in relation to its volume and port size. For example, if you have a box with 12 cubes and deside to slot port it, as the length and port area decrease, the box volume increases as well. does this effect the tuning of the box?

Yea...Well what do you want to know:

1. The smaller the port length, the higher the tunning for a given port area.
2. When figguring out your NET box volume(the real volume minus the port displacement(port takinup space and sub)) you should minus that displacement of the port(subwoofer too) and re calculate your gross box volume(volume of inside box reguarless of inside stuff).

BCAE.com has a calulator for that..but i dnt recc it...I'ts just there if u want to use.

for ex if you plan your box to be around 12 final cubes, how can you plan for port displacement when it is going to vary in size depending on what the box is to be tuned to wich in turn effects the cubes and tuning of the box

i guess you need to decide on a volume, build the port to your tuning, and then adjust the box volume to compensate for the port and sub displacement?

Yea but you are actually right, for accuracy u also need to re calc the port length. Portarea, no!

An easy and most accurate way is to have the port outside the box..
