Hey guys. I've been designing slot ported enclosures for a while, but a guy on another forum suggested an aeroport box for me to save space in my car, which I'm now trying to design. However, I do have a few questions about aeroports.

1. He said to keep the port as far away from the sub, what's that about? Is there a certain distance that works best, or doesn't it matter at all?

2. Is there a certain amount of space that should be kept between the inside end of the port and the wall of the inside of the box?

3. Flares - what're they for? What do they do? Do I need one on both ends of the port, just 1, or neither?

4. Do aeroports generally peak on frequencies more than slot ports? What're the pros/cons of each?

Thanks in advance for any input fellas. I'll put my design up here and see what you guys think after I'm done.

(By the way, I used http://www.psp-inc.com/tools.html ...would it be safe to use the numbers it gave me?)

Let me google that for you (http://lmgtfy.com/?q=aero+port+placement)

Where should the port be installed on a vented enclosure? (http://rftech.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/26/kw/aero%20port)
