seeing how a slotport is pretty much a done deal im kinda hesitant to make one for the following concern__the figures im gonna use are examplatory and just so u get what im asking

lets say u have two aeroports in the same box- 100/300 mm and 75/200 mm and they make the exact same tunning but with the smaller one we have port noise...now i know how to calculate an aeroport into a slot one(or do I:crap:) but how do u determine the 'sides' on the slot port so it doesnt produce noise...the thing is im trying out various aeroports on my box till i find what suits me best then ima build a new box with a slot port...

thnx for the input anyone:veryhapp:

You calculate surface area, I'm not sure where the limit is on port noise or no port noise depending on box size. But I can tell you I'd go bigger than 3".

the box is 52 liters, little less then 2 cubic feet i think...

Maybe you should look into those 6" aero's floating around in the classifieds.

very important thing that noone has mentioned... for example...(all these numbers are made up and have NO signfigance)

if you find that you like the sound of 40in^2 aero port tuned at 35Hz...it is not gonna sound the same as a slot port @ 40in^2 at 35hz. a 40" aero will act closer to a 70-80" slot port, becase of the air an aero can flow. if you want to test diff ports you need to build a box w/ and interchangeable slot port...or just stick w/ aeros.
