Hey guys I am new to the forum and would like to ask you guys a couple of questions if I may. First off I am planning on running an 18'' subwoofer. I have one set of box plans made and like them, though it only has 5.5 cubes tuned to 38hz. The damsons are H 18 x W 35 x D 24.75.If I where to use aero ports how much more cubes would I get and how many and what size ports must I use to get the 38hz tuning. The subwoofer I am more then likely going to used will be the AQ 18 and will probably run off 3-3,200k rms. Let me know what you guys think


Thanks Again,
Altered

IMO, that's a lot of power for that woofer and the box could be a tad bit bigger.

3 is a tad bit too little

Which is why I am wondering what I could get out of aeros instead of the slot. What kind of power would you recommend?

He was making fun of you because you put 3 - 3,200K RMS

3200K = 3,200,000 RMS...

:p:.

I do think that's a bit much for their daily power handling, but the box is a bit small for an 18, so it may take it. Just know what your doing with the gains.

yeah I noticed that after I posted like I said I new here but not new to the game. Plus I ve never worked with aeros so I figured I'd ask.
