Ok, have a box for my sub and am confused about tuning it properly w/ aeros.

Sub: 15" IA DP
Box: Approx 5.25 cubes w.o sub in
Ports: 2 flared 4" ports

Looking to tune the sub to between 33-35hz
Where do I cut the ports? What length should I be aiming for?

I tried searching and using that calculator thing, but couldn't get it right

~8-9.5 inches long each according to WinISD

Thanks, so I just cut them and glue the flares onto both sides?

I'd use duct tape unless you want them to be permanent :fyi:

Ok, I'm still all confused., I understand what everyone is saying, but my box is weird.

Box is 24x24x24
Has cutouts for 2 4" Aero Ports
Inside of box, in the dead middle is:
Full board w/ cutout of 12" sub and again 2 4" aero holes.

At the recommended 9" I'm coming **** close to the interior walls, and it seems weird to have an aero that isn't reaching my middle aero cutout?

This is confusing me because:
A) I'm starting to think this is bigger than 5 cubes, even after displacement
B) PSP wants 1 full port diameter away from any interior walls (mine is right in middle)
C) Dumbest question yet, what do you guys recommend using to cut the aero port?
