but i got a question.the box was originally built by DD'S specs so i got 4 cubes plus 64 sqin of port 20 long to lower tuning to roughly 36hz.question is,i ordered a square(cough,cough)15 inch sub to put in it just for kicks(cough,cough) to see if i could get some bigger spl #s with only 1215rms and the big 3 done.,than i was gettin with the 2500 dd.iS 64 INCHES of port too much for the for sided monstrosity called a solo-baric?there,i said it i own a solo-baric! but as in all bass-aholics,its only temporary.while im making the round hole square i could easily close up the port alil,maybe down to 50 inches if neccesary.what do yall think?

Is it a SOLO X? It may perform well, just try it out.

just use the rule of thump, and stay between 12-16 sq inches of port area per cubic foot

yes i will try it and yes that was waay easier to say. i just know that mainstream subs get bashed on here pretty bad,so iwas beating around the bush and tyring albeit not very well,to be sarcastic.thanks for the replies. sub should be here late next week with weekend and holiday so we will see.

I see noone bashing you

And I hope when you were saying you could 'close the port up some' you meant shrink the surface area of the entire length of the port, not just bottle necking it at the baffle
