Dinas Build RS100 Enclosure Size?

When I calculate out the specified size for the RS100 enclosure on the DINAS plans it comes out to .026. Parts Express recommends a .04 for sealed enclosures and .1 for vented. Would I see a benefit in the DINAS performance if I adjusted the enclosure size to the recommended .04 size? Or even made it a .1 ported box? I realize I would have to adjust the entire bookshelf speaker to keep the box volume correct for the Tang Band sub as well.

@andrewluz No you would not see any type of benefit.  The size was calculated to blend with the subwoofer.  And should not be changed.

@123toid Thank you for the information. I am new to speaker building and am trying to learn. I didn’t realize you could adjust the speaker box size to help cross over the midrange to the sub.

No worries at all.  Questions are a great way to learn. I would highly recommend downloading a program like WinISd for free and messing around with it.  It really can give you some great insights on how box size changes affect response.  And in some cases, barely affect it at all.
