When I play my subs, the air from my ports **** in instead of blowing out. Is this right? I just started paying attention to it and low end isnt solid like it was this weekend. I havent changed anything, what could it be???

subs move in and out... hence air moves in both directions :fyi:

X2. I learned this when I put paper next to my port to watch it be blown away and the paper was ****** right in

Exactly what I was thinking. Maybe you are thinking about the speaker wire.

it would make no difference to phase though:confused:

and still with push and pull of the driver, you would have bi-directional airflow

You didnt misread anything. :fyi:
You are the one who said that about the rca's. Not trying to be a ****, just pointing it out.

i dont think anything is wrong unless you blew one sub or something. but yes that is the hole point of a port( to let air go in AND out of the box to produce more reverbaration). and btw think before you type alot of the guys on here know way to much about sterio **** and have nothing better to do but point out when you give a fellow sterio nut wrong advice(there is nothing worse the reading someones wrong answer to a good qustion).
