    Sub Enclosure Slot port

    Hi,

    I have a JL 10 W7. The recommended ported enclosure for this is a slot. Does anyone know anything about this and ported enclosures in general, how do you know the size of the port and where to put it?

    Thanks

    The port area should be listed. Rectangular area is calculated by width x height. You can put the port anywhere on the box but people usually put them on the baffle face.

    If you visit JL Audio's website they will give you the exact dimensions for creating a slot port enclosure.

    just backing up what the others have said!

    do you have a length for the port as well?

    thanks for the response guys. I realise that jl have the dimensions for a slot port but I was trying to get an understanding as I am wanting to create a customer fit box. So is it the port length that is important or the port area (ie the size of the hole?)

    Thanks

    all of it.

    I understand wanting to keep it all custom.

    You really need to keep the port as they have recommended.

    OK so if the port area and the port length are both key, what is stopping me from making the port sqaure as apossed to a slot?

    I don't think there's a difference in going with a rectangular port v. a square port.

    Make sure the face of the port is tapered to cut down on port noise.

    From my understanding, a circular port will cut down on noise the most.

    You're supposed to not bypass a 3:4 ratio of the length of the sides. Try not to make the lenghs multiples of eachother and you'll be okay.
