Default Designing an enclosure

first off i know that torres calculator is a great enclosure design program, but what i wanna know is how to design the optimal enclosure for a subwoofer and vehicle on a simple level. i realize its a fairly complex process, ive seen the extensive software that hexibase uses on youtube to design enclosures and im not ready to go that deep into it. im just looking for an explanation as to how much port area, enclosure volume, and sub/port orientation can be figured out. i know theres some experienced box builders on here that could really shed some light on this subject, i understand if you dont want to reveal any/all of your secrets. so help a fellow enthusiast out

I asked about this the other day because there is not a thread that thoroughly goes through it. Please correct me if I'm wrong by linking to such a tutorial. I would also like to see something like this. I did use the search tool and some googling too

Im just looking for a straight easy to understand answer. Its one thing to read it and another to understand it. I know theres guys on here that really understand this stuff and can explain it well enough to teach someone. Ive searched and just end up getting frustrated because i dont have the answer to any of my questions.

And neither did we when we first started. I knew nothing when I got here, and am arguably one of the better designers here now.

Learning consists of time, initiative, and more effort. Its out there. Keep reading all the threads you can, test out the software. Google a few books on subwoofer and enclosure design. E.g. loudspeakerdesign cookbook and more.

If you have a specific question, ask it. If the material or documentation is there though, dont be upset if you receive an RTFM response.

I would love to enlighten you on the knowledge I have gain through the years, but for the specifics you are requesting, its not going to be as simple as you like as far as figuring for an optimum design. You will not get "optimum" by wanting to know simple methods. My designs are not calculated using specific tuning requirements, so what I would be able to help you with would take much more than a few posts or so, but as far as a starting point, since I cannot leave you hangin, would be to get the loudspeaker cookbooks and start there. But again, my design aproach is much different than others, so direct help would be improbable unless you can give some specific questions to what you would like to know. And hopefully other will learn from this as well in your situation.
Good luck to you!
