Thanks Joe. I have enough damping left so it will not be a problem to try getting lower this way. 20mm more on the port? I'm surprised that I can add as much considering the relatively short lenght of the port.

I added 15mm to mine to get the appropriate drop. You would be surprised how much you can add and how small the corresponding frequency drop that results.

I found an interesting study about the effect of port lenght and damping vs Fb. vent tuning

Played with damping and port lenght this morning. Adding damping did not lower Fb, obviously, I didn't add enough... Fb stayed at 35 Hz. I only changed the 25mm thick damping pieces at the front for 33mm thick pieces.

I added 20 mm to the port with tape and Fb got down to 33 Hz.

Do you like the sound better at that tuning?
