    After hours of trial and error on IspCAD, I finally (I think) came up with a design. The design ended up being a 250L tube with ONE 17in by 4in port. This gave me a tuning requency of 13Hz. My BIG question is is it appropriate to stuff a ported Sonosub? In my design I put 50% Polyfill, however, am supposed to leave a section open so that the air can pass through the port? In that case, should I mount the port above the drive on the top plate or from the bottom plate, beside the driver? I'm getting confused again - right when I thought I was figuring things out... Thanx for everything though, you guys are a big help!

    With that much enclosure volume, I don't think you need to stuff the enclosure (but the tuning frequency will rise when you enter 0 for the percentage of stuffing in LspCAD).
    (I'm assuming you're using the Tempest driver.)

    I am indeed using the Tempest, and the volume is made up with width...Its a sonotube that is 24" wide and 3 feet tall.
    Should I just line the sides with the padding in this case then?
