View Full Version : Pot location

Does the location of the port in a box make any difference. Most of the boxes that I have seen have the port facing the same way as the sub but for my box the port will need to be on the side. Would this be a problem?

Nice thread title, fella.
Was it you that did that or did someone with some editing power pull a fast one on ya?

I've seen many an enclosure that the ports faced perpendicular to the side that the driver was mounted in so I wouldn't think it would matter too terribly so long as the port(s) are measured such so that they are appropriate to the sub(s) you're using them with.

Ha! no total uh oh but I think it may help spark some interest in the thread.

Placement of ports actually does matter ;)

Well I would like a little more explination. Does my set-up sound like trouble or do you think it would be ok?

Depending on the vehicle it might even help you ;)

i am getting ready to build a box with the sub on top and the port on the bottom end facing towards the rear of my trunk. box is 2 cubes tuned to 32Hz for one 13Ov.2 and will be in a 2003 dodge neon. will this cause a problem or will it help things? i was told it would help things...
