Basically Im cheap as sin and am looking for a temp setup.
I am looking to build an enclosure for a AQ HDC3 18" subwoofer and was looking to make one out of a sonotube.
Well I found the next best thing, at my work we have these big thick plastic barrels and they just so happen to turn out to be the perfect size and depth.
Heres a pic of it after I gave it a rinse. And with its next victim etc...
Anywho. My idea is to cut a single 3/4" baffle for the front for the subwoofer, and port at the other end via flared aero port.
The problem I face is that I suck at math and have a hard enough time doing slot port enclosures. Can anyone help me crunch a few numbers.
As best I can tell with my tape measurer, it has an internaldiameter of 22.5" and a total height of 29.5" as of right now
On the one calculator i found it said it was like 7.5 cubes as it sits, so its gonna have to be cut down. But Im also gonna have to battle port length issues.
Can anyone help me with some numbers?? I was thinking probly 2 4" ports or maybe just one 8" flared?? 10"?? Doesnt matter to me as long as it sounds good.
And in the ballpark of 5-6 cubes @ 38hz
