Default slot ported wedge enclosure

i was wondering if it is possible to put a slotted port on a wedge design enclosure. i have a rf p2d412 12"sub and i am trying to save trunk space so i decided to go for a wedge design. and trying to make the enclosure as conservative as possible, yet i want to try to make a ported box.

tried surfing for a wedge designed enclosure that has slotted port with no luck. maybe anyway can give some advice.

You can make a box any shape you desire, so long as the volume of the box is what you want and the corresponding port dimensions are too. Note with a small box you can run into a huge port needed to tune it properly.

thanks for the reply jol50, can the slotted port be placed in front of the slanted portion of the wedged enclosure ? how can this be computed ? i have not much experience with computation. i have used the aid of box wizard over at rockfordfosgate site. and i have no idea how to compute for the slot port.

Well so long as you have the T/S Thiele/Small parameters for the speaker you can calculate it very easy

Just you WinISD look through the database and see if your speaker is already there, if not add it in and start playing. You can tell the program box type and then box shape also. There are many tutorials out there that explain it better than I could ever though
