I decided to build a sealed box for my 3 12w6v2, then I decided I should go ahead and do ported, lol. Any recommendations own how much port area I should have if I am running 1 or 2 ports? Thanks.

PS will be in a 6 cube box.

Any recommendations on how low to tune it at? Going for SQL

after you set the Vb, tuning, and port size, goto the port screen and click the box that says "Reccomended vent dimensions for Xmax"

How much would be needed for port area and port length if i were going to have 2 ports

With those subs you could get away with 12 inches of port area per sub or 3 round 4 inch diameter pvc pipes. I had a 10w7 with a single 4 inch pvc port with zero noise. But if you have the room go with around 20 inches per sub for a total of 60 inches.

Ok, so around 60 inches, if 1 port, and 30 inches each if doing 2?

Also, Im getting weird numbers out of WInisd, anyone have nay other programs?

i have bassbox pro 6, which is probably the best one out there. you can get it from limewire easily.
