if the port size is bigger, then the port length wont be as long as a small sized port size ritght?, does that affect to sound?

more port area and a shorter port means higher tuning, less port area and a longer port means lower tuning.

I calculated --

a box tuned at 26hz, with 72sq inch of port, with 4cu.ft net, must have port length of 7inch, is that correct?

no i dont think thats correct, but i dont know how to calculate boxes it just sounds way to short.

sounds way to short .. And what sub and why would you tune to 26 hz.. Btw i got in the range of a 50-60 inch port

That would be closer to being right if you were going for 46 hz ;)

its for a AA arsenal(new avalanche)
I thought of doing the Moe lester plan of 4cu.ft @ 27hz though

but id like to know whats the benefit of having big sized port instead of small one?

It can be sub dependant, but not usually.. The only thing i can see is port noise.. And with a port as big as that i doubt you'll see any.. Seems like a small box for that sub

a bigger port port will need to be longer than a smaller port to have the same tuning.

well, they recommend 3.5 net tuned @28hz, I guess 4 would be perfect, no?

I want it LOUD on the LOW END mostly and mainly, cuz I play lot of music with low end, 25-30-35-40 hz range, would that box suit me?

that box would be fine.. 56^2 in port .. But i dont know what music you listen to but even most low rap is not below 35

if you want great low end you can build a big sealed box and sacrifice a little bit of output.

I think he's got that but hes just asking if there is say a difference from haveing a port thats 2x14 tuned to 26 hz, as opposed as a port thats 4x14 tuned to 26 hz.. Other than the port length getting longer .. Is there any advantage to having more port area.. Right?

ya thats wut i meant! is there a difference in the sound? is it louder? more peaky?

ttt , anyone?? and if I go sealed how much output will I lose? i really dont wanna lose alot

More port surface area will yield less port noise (normally). But to much port area could be a bad thing. If you go to large it effects the performance of the driver. Try to stay around 50in^2 of port area for your driver.
