im putting 5 in a truck box, but each is sealed off with indivdual ports for each
so will 1 2 inch port be enough?

you have to get PVC elbows to curve your port... but if you
have a small diameter port you wont need excessive length anyways...

my 3" port is only like 6.25" long...


and slots arent necessarily a pain in the *** as much as they
require a more precise build to get it all together nicely... and
they make the box bigger than a round port does...

well i talked to david(at RE), he said the 2inch pipe will work just fine and gave the the length i would need

i was thinking about useing elbos but i would have needed 2 of them and made a U shape
on top of that the box is very thin, (truck box) and with a 2 inch port i can have the ports firing at the cieling and the subs firing right behind the seat. with the 2.5 or 3 the port would have needed to be like 30" long....as far as stuffing it into the box...im not sure i could have done it
