Default The JamBoxx

Not sure where to put this question, I'll try here.


Greeting, I have been looking around the site for several weeks and enjoy what I see. I have a few questions about a JamBoxx I am Building. I have plenty of woodworking skills so my basis are covered there, I just need help on the electronics end.

Here is my plan.
This unit will be for use in my garage while I am working. I am not looking for max volume etc, just a great clean sound at low volume, at minimal pricing.

The size of the box will be 20 inches wide by 10 inches deep and 10 inches tall.

The amp I am using is the
Lepai Digital 2x15W Mini Amplifier
with Remote USB MP3 SD FM (Lepai Digital 2x15W Amplifier with Remote USB MP3 SD FM 310-302)

The speakers (2) I was considering are these
HiVi B4N 4" Aluminum Midbass Round Frame

(HiVi B4N 4" Aluminum Midbass Round Frame 297-429)

And I will be using the MP3 output of the amp to play music from my Galaxy S2.

Here are my questions.
1. Are these speakers gonna work in this box?

2. Do I need to port the box or seal it?

3. I have tried many of the online speaker box calculators, but cant figure out how to use them, is there a very simple one?

4. Are the speakers I have chosen enough, or do I need to add tweeters?

5. How hard would it be to add something that would allow me to pick up AM radio (so I can listen to the ballgames)? And what would you suggest?

Thanks for your replys.

Not having enough info on the speaker I would think the inside of the box should be less than 0.25 qubic foot and sealed. You will need a tweeter with it unless you listen to AM radio only. A soft-dome tweeter would be my choice. E
