i would be 2 hz higher than i need to be and a lil more port than needed.

4 4" aeros would be the same port area as a single 8".
I kinda have both slot and aero in my car now. I have 2 6" firing sideways into a loading wall that looks like a slot.

i juust realized how stupid i was. i was looking at 3 4's not 4 4's lulz.... but yeah single 8 may do but fitting it on the face will be hard, i only have 32 wide.

Aero, reason being- they are far more efficicent imo. Check out my most recent box build for an example of how a true aero box should be built (special piece inside the box)

The end result was 142.5 sealed on the dash out of the trunk on 1.4k before rise, stock electrical, no deadening on some 6yr old sq subs, oh and the box was tuned to 31.75hz. What I'm saying is there is plenty of room for improvement and I'm already close to what other people doing with more power and higher tuning with stronger equipment.

How have they let you down? A large percentage of my builds use pvc ports, and I have always have good experiences with them. My old daily box had actual aeros and I had trouble getting them to seal properly, I think thats how my current box gained at least 2.4db over the last one with the external aeros.

hell i may be good at aeros and not know it its been so long since i did an aero box.

Try doing an enclosure with pvc, its far less expensive, then when you feel more comfortable, switch to a real aero.

I just saw your other thread about removing the backseat and flipping your box around and someone had mentioned subs back, port to the side. If you go that route, I suggest building a larger scale version of this box:

You could definitely keep the width at or under 32inches and with a 36hz tune with 2 6in ports and 3.8cu/ft, the ports would need to be 26.5in long.
