Has anyone had any personal experience with a triangular shaped port? I have a location where i want to put the port in my next build but its not a typical spot where a square slot port will work.. im wondering who has used a triangle shaped slot port or abnormal shaped port. this will be for a higher powered daily setup, 6kw and probably 180 to 200 sq inches of port. im thinking there will be a big drop in air flow in the tighter corners of the port, but i dunno


thanks,
Cody

What about aero ports, I think you are correct in the assumption that your air flow would be weird in the corners of the triangle.

If it's a daily setup and #s aren't a big issue then I wouldn't worry about it too much.

im not too worried about sealed up numbers because i always drive with my windows down partially, i was doing about 148.8-149 sealed up on the dash on music w/ 2 15"s

with windows down partially, i'd like to be around 151-152 on the dash. ill have over 2-2500 more watts and 1 more 15", i was at 149.9 before on music before. so its daily, but numbers are always nice :D

basically a loud daily, with potential to bassrace 149.9. i think im going a different route with the port. have all 3 subs side by side, and port up high on the wall, like imamp3pimps

Since you're using a triangle shaped port I would highly recommend this. http://www.etronics.com/p-2791-bazooka-rx-t1-10-triangle-component-subwoofer.aspx?dp=F2C20242E6222253D38363C3B3571373 6373D3330313 When the subwoofer shape matches the shape of the port, the waves that are produces fit more easily through the vent allowing more air flow.

This should clear everything up for you. Just read it all. http://www.faqs.org/patents/app/20080229920

looks like he wants you to fail

heres how i see it

i think that the airflow throughout would be just fine given that you are using a big enough port.

no matter the shape.

so if thats what you have to work with, then go for it.

just make sure that you have the length, because bending that, i can see it being a major pain in the *** if you have th keep the surface area the same (or close) throughout

How can you say shape doesn't matter? You obviously didn't read this http://www.faqs.org/patents/app/20080229920

Or maybe you did read it, yet you didn't understand it so you just ignore it.

ok thanks, im going to do something different and place the port up higher so i can make it rectangular, probably 6" x 32". Ill just run the 3 subs side by side

if you rounded the interior corners of the triangles. it wouldn't be too bad. I've seen this done (the rounding of corners) in BIG square ports
