Sub IA DR 21". Box will be 8 cubes and I want to tune to about 35-36 hz. This will be a daily driver- needs to sound decent.

Here are my two thoughts. I know I've made quite a few threads but I want to build this box perfect the first time.

Options:

1. Rectangular port ~128 square inches port. 45's in the corner.

2. PVC, Schedule 80. ID=9.5", OD=10.75", so thickness=5/8. Leaves me about 8.9 square inches of port. There will be some form of mdf flares on both ends.

3. Other- please specify

**Edit** If you make flares, lmk.

First... spelling. Seriously expect me to take anything you have to say seriously when you can't even spell professional?
Second... that's subjective. And odds are you've only seen really poorly done round ported designs. I, myself, have done round ports which looked amazing, and professional. It all depends on the builder... if they're competent and / or care then it won't be a hack job. :thumbsup:

I will probably find someone to build the flares for me. Hopefully I can make a half decent box.

slot you will outperform a round port with a slot all day long

slot port is better for your size box. If it was smaller then areo ports could work better.

It will be a single port, not multiple smaller ones.

not necessarily, depends on the box.
