    Finally got some more time to get back to planning a sonosub with the Atlas 15.

    I am looking at internal dimensions of 22" diameter x 50" long (311.462 Liters or 11 cubic feet).

    Am I correct that I would need two 22" long x 6" diameter ports to tune this thing at 16hz?

    I can't wait until it warms up so that I can go outside and start cutting MDF. [​IMG]

    Do you need two 6" wide ports? Is port noise really loud with just one 6" wide port?

    A single 6" port will need to be just over 22" long. Dual 6" ports will need to each be almost 49" long.

    I'm absolutely agree with Patrick Sun. I got the same serios problem about port noise.

    but you can calculate port length:
    L=(2354*D^2/VF^2)-0.85D
    L - port length (mm)
    D -port diam (mm)
    V - box capacity (litres)
    F - tuning frequency (Hz)
