Heres the thing. I am getting a 12" Shocker SS, and I need to build a box. I want ported around 35 or so. My max dimensions are 40" W, 18" H, and 10" (!!) D. That shallow depth may make it hard to port it. Any help?

It wont be as hard to port if the port is a slot port instead of a round tube. Slot ports dont have to be as long due to the increased surface area of the slot opposed to the round tube. I think, Jmac correct me if i'm wrong:confused: :rolleyes:

thats kind of right, but not for the right reason. Actully as port area increases the length also increases...there is more to it, because you are right that when round ports get ridiculously long, the slot ports are used....**** it i cannot think right now :confused:

the reason slots are used is because you get a larger crossection, from a shorter run, or in a space that would otherwise be hard to fit a long run with a round port.
