wich one of these ports would work best for a 10" re se in a 1.545 cubic foot box. im pretty sure they are all tuned at 38hz. #1) 4" by 12.25" long
#2) 3" by 6.34" long
#3) 5" by 20.06" long
#4) 2" by 2.33" long

wich will work the best with the less noise and such?

thanks guys.:D

#3, bigger the port the better! but u have to take into consideration that the area the port takes up takes away from the initial box volume...

so ill prolly go with # 3 then and so i have 1.545 cubes now and when i put the port in it will be a little less right? will that change the tunning from 38 to somethin else?

Port won't take up that much area...not even close to that...

so is a 1.315 cube box tuned to 38 hz gonna be good for a 10" re se with about 500 watts into it? or maybe this should be in the sub section?
