View Full Version : Ported 12" sub

Okay so i finally got around to porting my sub box. Listening to blueledz's advice i ignored sony's recommendation of 3x8" port.

Unfortunately, i only got my hands on a 3x11" port. This whole operation was free after all, considering i got all the things i need from my father in-law.

Well, it sounds great! thx for the advice on port length blue. I'd post pics of the final product but you all would laugh at my lack of skill in construction. The silicone caulk was not neatly applied to say the least, haha. Man, this whole thing took like 2 hours!

see, 3" does make a difference:biggrin: those 3" lowered the tuned freq so that you get better low bass performance, and a box that isn't so boomy from having a big hump in the response in the 50-60 hz region like most manufacturer recomended boxes do;)
