Explain something to me....I've heard with round ports the ports need to be a diameters width away from any wall? True/False? Looks great man, sorry for the slight threadjack.

the as.s end of the port needs to be the diameter away from the back wall.



i think its 4.5 or maybe 5 inches from the wall in that box.

yeah, i was going to ask the same, i already have a 4.5 sealed box on my 15" l5 if i added them ports will it be better, or should i start a new one like a 3.5 from moe lesters plans with the rectangular port?? which is better??

i like them a ton better.





if you flip the port around so it sticks out the the box, its louder, but less clean looking.

ive had extensive play with all three of these woofers.
(sondy's Type R and solo X and then Ben's L7)


its really tought to say...all were in different boxes, different cars and different power.


out of the 3...

the type R was the loudest.

the solo X was 2nd loudest

the L7 is the best all around setup out of the three IMO.

Absolutely a big nothing. One is square, and one is circle...

Aero ports are 'adjustable' per say though... If you wanted to change the tuning of the box you could essentially just cut or lengthen the tubes. With square ports you're pretty much at the 'set' tuning because it's hard to change the length once it's installed.

Mr. Opportunist
02-15-2006, 12:45 AM
aero ports generally have less port noise, are easily adjustable for tuning, and are all around easier to work with.

i did it for one of my friends.

I have 2 of the new l7 15s coming in on thursday. We will truely see if they are up to the task of 2000+ daily on each when my amp arrives:naughty:

Towncar
02-15-2006, 12:03 PM
WTF...where did it say that the new L7s will handle 2,000rms for daily?

Tracey told me he has some guys running 2 1200.1s to each of the new ones, so I figured why dont I give it a shot. He said they should be okay as I remember.

how do you know what size(diameter/length) port to work with for the frequency tuning you want?

I always thought L7's would be a lot louder than a type R..no?

Hey, I just built a box much like that this weekend. I was gonna go with 3 ports but could only fit 2 in. 4.5 cubes tuned to 35 hz. Haven't gotten to hear it yet though, it's for a friend and I haen't been able to get a hold of him.

I just read that as well. When a solo x is overshadowed by a type r, something is either very wrong, or very, VERY right with the r.
