uhhh? did you not read post? it is ported, thats why theres a tuning freq. and i fixed the tuning, and my not buiding another ported box, this is TEMPORARY, Transmission Line, thats what im going for. and that program you speak of, i have tried it, its kinda screwy and nothing like how it actually works in the real world, would not recommend basing box dimensions off that.

and finaly, wood cost, one of my firedns just built a woofer box, he used 3 sheets of 2x4 3/4" thick (way to thin for my sub) and that cost him 75$ to use that would i would have to use 2 sheets of wood for every side and would need about 8 sheets of wood with the port extension i added. thats 200$ in wood. im broke and only half way twards buying an amp that can actually push my sub.

ile stick to my dumpster diving wood thats 1.25" think 2x4's
vid on some new rattles.

That box is pretty.. ghetto

May even look worse than the first sub box I ever built

My second attempt making a speaker enclosure went better

It's not super ghetto, although upclose pics show the many imperfections,

Made them with car components speakers, have the crossovers hot glued to the sides and the tweeters gasket sealed into the holes (cut them too big)

A few of my measurements were off too, so the sides hang out from the back a fair ways

Painted it with regular spray paint in a can to give it the glossy look

apparently my post is gone, so im reposting this, my rigged up sound system causing voltage dips on the 120 line.
probably because i have 3 sub amps running at same time. and since one of my amps is a car amp running off of a 14.4v power supply i would say thats still ghetto.

How did you overclock that cpu on the DELL board? Do you have a custom bios?

You need thicker power cables coming into your house. Maybe add a few line conditioners between the wall and your electronics so they don't get as much of a voltage drop.

Mods delete posts that stir the pot and/or upset others.wink.gif

Seems you lack understanding of basic electrical line load and size demands. Your problem could be from many causes, but most likely is house wiring. The wiring from panel to receptacle you are plugged into. It's basic electrics and ohms law. If wire is not big enough it's resistance lowers the voltage and raised the wattage load and increases heat. This often resulting in burned up equipment.

Source of problem could be power to meter wiring from meter to panel, panel itself, wiring from panel, socket you are plugging into, wiring to amp, etc. Sub amps use huge amounts of power and often require caps to run smoothly.
