Hello all,
Is there a way we can put a square port calculator up as we did with the round port calculator to where we can input different length, and width's to come up with the correct tuning frequency port?
Thanks!

In case there are too many variables with height and width of a slot port to make a calculator, all you need to do is convert the round port to a slot or square port with the same surface area.  For example, a 6 inch round port has a surface area of 28 square inches.  This will be the same as a port of 2 X 14 inches, or 4 X 7 inches  or a square port of 5.3 inches.

The formula for for determining the surface area of a circle is,  PIE X Radius Squared.   A 6 inch port  3.14159 X  (3 X 3)  = 28.27431

4 inch port   3.14159 X (2 X 2)  = 12.566  Which is the same area as a port 1 X 12 inches.  Or a 2 X 6 inch port. 

Hopefully he can help you out with a calculator, but if he can't I hope this helps you.

You are absolutely right thankyou!
I was just thinking that to take out the math for some the calculator idea would be fast and simple as is figuring the port size but just an idea.
Thanks bud!

It's on my list. I'll do what I can to make some time to knock it out this week-end.

The slot port length calculator is finally available. I used your math in the examples above to calculate the diameter of an equivalent round port based on the area of the slot determined by the width and height fields, but I did not round off Pi, so the output will differ slightly from your examples. Give it a try and let me know if this is what you wanted.

Actually I used my own math, but I did base it on converting the area of the slot to that of a cirlce to get a diameter to calculate length.
