Ok, so I have the box built, its 1.5 cubic feet, and I need to tune it to 32 Hz, so I plugged the numbers into the calculator below, and I get right around 36". Is this 36" the length of each port or is it like the statement below? (I have three 3" Aeros)
http://www.psp-inc.com/psp-inc.com/public_html/..%5Ccgi-bin%5Cport_length_calculator.cgi

Its def. like i said before,this is the combined length for all 3 tubes.
I went through every formula i have bookmarked,and they all come out the same.
3 3in [email protected] 12in long will give you 32hz tuning.
Can anyone verify this statement? I always thought diffrent.

Length Per Port

if you enter 2 4" ports and it says 20" long....that means 20" long for each port...not 10" long each port.

So each port needs to be 36 inches then?

My last question is, will I notice a big diffrence between having flared ports and non flared ports?

you also have to take port displacement into consideration, since your box is already built.

so with 3, 3" dia, 36" long ports that's about 0.4 ft^3 of displacement, which put the box at 1.1 ft^3 and the tuning at 37Hz!

i been wondering that also, is this right ?
3cu. box with 4, 4" flared tubes 13 in long would be 55hz

if i plugged up one port, the closest i get would be
1 port pluged around 47hz
2 ports pluged around 39hz
3 ports pluged around 28hz

basiclly trying to make 1 box for a 10" that i dont have to remake.
for comp. and dd. so is that right?

You dont have to worry man, I got that under control, the box currently is extremely close to 2 cubes.

Now...back to my question.

you won't hear as much port noise with a flared tip... thats about the only difference

you positive? I was thinking the same thing, but jntar said they already figure the port displacement in the calc. Said he wasnt 100% sure, though.

How bad will the noise be in reality though?

Any one have any experience?

If I'm not mistaken... which you've probably already figured out but if you need 36" port length, you technically only need 1 port with x" diameter and 36" in length, but you need either a larger diameter or a larger number of ports in order to increase port area to accomodate the port length...
