View Full Version : Port help please

Hey guys and girls...

I have a question about desiging my port. I have been given the proper measurements by the manufacturer about my design, but what I am wondering is instead of one large port like my pictures below illustrate, can I create two smaller ports, or somehow make ports out the side? I created the 3/4" plexi window so the sub would be centered...any help would be appreciated...the dimensions of the port are supposed to be 16" deep x 5" long x6" wide. There wasn't enough room to make a straight 16" port, so it had to be curved...

Here are some pics:



Sorry for the number of links, but I just wanted to show you everything I could...

is that plexi flush with the mdf? and only held in by the silicon? if so theres your first problem...thats going to hold for about half a second. Anways, you can make 2 smaller ones, but why are you porting such a small box? it doesn't seem very efficent......, you can make two smaller ports, but it doesn't change the length by half....you will end up with way to much wood inside that box and next to no volume after all displments are taken in acount....my suggestion is not to port it, but if your going to slot port, only do one.

The plexi is routed out with the MDF and is secured with screws and silicone. It aint goin anywhere :)

The box is 3.5 cu/ft, and for that sub, the recommended sealed is 1.5. I made the box thinking I was getting a different sub, but when I found out that I would be getting the sub that I have now, I talked to the tech. guy at the manufacturer, and he gave me the port dimensions and such...
