Subwoofer Box Comparison Calculator:
Compare bandpass, sealed and vented frequency output graphs for a subwoofer in one program.
Solving for minimum port or vent diameter for a vented box or enclosure.

#### Inputs:

driver effective diameter (D)
linear displacement maximum (Xmax)
box ore enclosure frequency(fb)
number of ports (Np)
unitless

#### Conversions:

driver effective diameter (D)
= 0
= 0

linear displacement maximum (Xmax)
= 0
= 0
millimeter
box ore enclosure frequency(fb)
= 0
= 0
hertz
number of ports (Np)
= 0
= 0

#### Solution:

Subwoofer Box and Speaker Enclosure
 vent or port length minimum vent or port diameter
k values:
 vent has one free end and one flanged = 0.732 vent has two free ends = 0.614 vent has two flanged ends = 0.85
Where
 Lv = length of port or vent Dv = diameter of port or vent Dmin = minimum diameter of port or vent Np = number of ports or vents Vb = volume of box fb or Fb = tuning frequency k = end correction factor Sd = surface area of subwoofer Vd = driver displacement volume Xmax = maximum linear displacement of driver
