I TOTALLY trust scottie johnson and think he knows 100% of what hes doing....

BUT can someone explain to me this...

He told me to build a 4.5 cube box with 4 - 4" aeroports...

Now.. why use those ports and not regular....

Just want to LEARN...

boxes with aeroports have been doing extremely well in SPL street setups..

HE did tell me that I will score a great deal higher with areoports.... just wanted to know the meaning behind this.....

Where can I buy these... I dont want to use just PVC pipes....

to me, it seems like you could produce similar results if you were to use pvc and a router w/ a round off bit to produce the flare....

Wouldnt it just be worth it to just get the areoports... and not mess around with it?

have you ever seen an aeroport? you cant get but 1/4" flare on the end of the PVC inside of the box... Aeroports have a MUCH larger flare than you can get with PVC

but the MDF would be part of the flare if you can visulize what i am talking about.

but if you dont mind spending $44 dollars on aeroports, then definitely go with those.

You have to have some surface holding the PVC and MDF together.... if you router all that out, your port's gonna fall off....

Aeroports would still have a bigger flare... atleast the one's I've seen...

i was thinking more of a 1/2 inch bit, and that'd leave more than enough space to keep the pvc mounted. however, i've never seen an aeroport in person, and dont know how big the flare is, so you are probably right.

I saw something that I think was branded JL, but it attaches to PVC and looks like an aeroport endcap. They were like $10 also.

So... Aeroports are better than slot ports?

round > rectangular. because the circumfrence of the shape is smaller, there is less drag on the air flowing through, and that equates to higher SPL.

i could make my own flare :rolleyes:
