Right now i've got a box in mind for a 15" Fi Q. its at 3.8 cubic feet (with all displacements taken into account) tuned to 30 hz. my question is would two 4" round ports be enough for this box?

That's about 25.14 square feet or port area, I think you should go with more port area. Do you have the option of using slotted or square ports? If you need to go with round ports, I would recommend using flared ports even better would be using two 6" flared ports.

i could use some square ports. for the sake of symmetry, how would i tune my box using dual square ports? im lookin at something like 28 square inches per port...

I had almost the exact same box, 3.8 cubic feet with 2 4" aero ports and an 15 Q and my sub didn't like it very much, couldnt handle as much power. I rebuilt my box using a square port with like 50 square inches of port and that helped a lot. Just my input.

alright, time to get less fancy with the design. plain ol rectangular box with slot ports. to calculate tuning for dual slot ports i divide the volume of the box by 2... right? and then calculate the length for each port from there...?

Do you "have" to do dual slot ports? One would be much easier...

how bout a single slot port.... but... its 3x18.5.... too narrow?

Port 2 1/2" x 18 1/2" gives you 46^2 which is right on for 3.8^3. And no issues with being too narrow...
