Hey guys, im building a 4th order box for two tens and the ported side is 3 cubes net would 3 3.5" aeros be better then one 6"? Just curious since I have lengths of both in my garage.

Actual aeroports or just PVC pipe, because there are no 3.5" aeros that I know of.

Both sizes are pvc and I always make roundover edges also from mdf

I would do more port area than that, but what 10's are they?

Kicker cvr tens 2 of them. More port area for 3cubes? I have some 8" I can use as well

I like to use about half the sd of the subs, so an 8" port would be more ideal.

Is this for bandpass enclosures only or also with regular vented enclosures? And also is it for just round ports?

Bandpass boxes don't unload like ported boxes, so you can get away with more port area.

Good question bc I had 4 cvr tens ported with one 8" aero. Would I have been better off using 2 8" aeros on 4 10s? never mind lol buck answered my question lol I think ill try an 8" first and I can make adapters to go smaller if I want to try.
