Would it be better to but 45's here or would it be bad? The pics will explain it better.

Option A.

Option B.

There are two, one on each side of the port. The box is 48" wide and the port is at the bottom in the middle, and is 30" wide.
There is a 45 on the back opposite of these.

without testing you have NO idea if they help or hurt, so I'd leave them out...

I agree. If you do gain, it won't be audible.

usually if 45s work it is because you are taking up area inside of the box...now if you use curves...that is a different story cause you arnt taking up much room and the pressure will keeps speed. thus will it make it louder. will it be audible? not unless you use 45s and take up alot of space and then the subs like the smaller box. now i have helped build 3 world champion spl vehicles and multiple top 5 world final vehicles. and with that i can tell you that angles ( if they work ) will gain at maximum .3..but most of the time i see a .005 to .008 so will help in spl comps but not in a daily application

I have gained more than .3 before, but that's not really the topic at hand.

To the OP, as stated I HIGHLY doubt you would hear an audible difference.

On the meter might be a different story, but your ears aren't as sensitive as the meter. :)

If you are wanting to gain spl u might want to go with thicker walls I would not use any thing less then 3/4... but that is just my opinion
