Quick one. Instead of the typical L slot port, can I move the port to the center like my diagram? Will it be the same, the way they share the total airspace? Thanks

oh and if you know, how much does kurfing the port opening effect tuning? I presume it makes it go up a bit?

can I ask why you want it in the middle first?

Nothing special, just to retain symmetry without doing two ports.

so there will be a sub on each side of the port? That may cause some unloading problems for one of the subs.

Ah ok. Re doing tuning plans, would this work since its even? sub on each side?

whats the tunning on that? Seems really high. Would you like someone to design a box for you?

Why not do a T port in the center? There's a whole thread going on about it today actually. That way you get the port in the middle for looks and great performance.

The drawing isn't 100%, but it should be ~4.56 cubes after port displacement tuned to ~38hz. Its higher for two AQ SDC2.5s. I hear they like 36-40 Range and Dj recommended me the 36-38 range. If you have any Ideas, im no pro and suggestions or recommendations would be much appreciated.

Ha I started that.... I'm exploring different ways to do a proper center slot, but didnt want to get the two different questions confused.

Oh lmao, sorry I should looked at that more carefully. But I think the T port is a MUCH better idea then this. :)

I think this is more of my focus now, if anyone has any thoughts on this?

you wouldnt have a balanced port if you did a center port any different then a T port, either T or Aero ports
