View Full Version : whats the skinny on port area?

im sure like most of you, im a fan of huge port area and huge port! but how much is too much? every company gives a recommended port area, or people like to use about 12-15 square inches of port per cubic foot. ive got a rl-p 15 and am drafting a new box to fit under my hatch cover for better security reasons. my current box is 4 cubes after disp. at 30hz w/ 55.5 square inches of port.(in love) the one im drafting is will be 3.5 after disp. at 32.5 w/ 67.5 square inches of port. i dont know when i plan on building the new one, maybe when i have the cash flow and a job lol

so how do you know you've gone to far?

the only thing i can see effected by a large port area is a lower power handling of the driver due to a larger box??
