View Full Version : Questions about porting

1. Does it really matter where the port is located? Obviously firing up or back, but would a side firing port be any different then a front or top firing in terms of loudness and low output?

2. Does having a port angle inside the box affect output?

3. Does port have to be a certain distance from the box walls?

Thanks in advance

1. It matters for tenths on the meter. If you're not a serious spl competitor, you will never know the difference.
2. Some people say it affects air speed in the port and reduces turbulence. Again, I think we're dealing with tenths on the meter and is sort of irrelevant for most users.
3. Do you mean the openning? Yes I would think you would want to give that some clearance. If you mean that actual port parallel to a wall, obviously not as most slot ported boxes USE an outer wall as port wall.
