    Not done yet. I'll be filling the empty corners with resin as well as the coating the wooden corner braces. There's also still a lot of "pretty" work to be done to the outside of the box.

    I would have but simply ran out of room. Even though it would have only added 1ft more displacement that was room that just wasn't there. No doubt port area is on the low side.

    mr negative? so ur tellin me its not ironic that he took all that time to build some ****** ports but didnt attemp to do 45's to but all the corners in instead of filling with resin? i know he has the wood working skills because of the port dont know why they werent used on the inside. thats not negative thats just me critiquing based on how well he built his port and his lack of corners. never said it was a bad box its pretty awesome.

    Re: 16 Sundown sa-12s Build

    If you look at it really... it's not all that bad on port area. 3 8" aero's = 150 sq inch of port area. 150 divided by 24 cubes = 6.25 sq in per cube. Since this is a true aero port with flares and all, you can achieve the same flow with 50% the cross sectional area. So in reality, this is equal to a slot port with around 12.5 sq in per cube which is perfectly acceptable. Could he have used more? Maybe... it sure couldn't hurt, that's for sure. Is this box going to sound bad? Unless he severely miscalculated something, I doubt it. Should slam like no-one's business.

    Lol, yeah. I think 4X 4.5kSAZ's should make those 1.5 cubes per sub work. Those subs are going to wish you decided to give up that extra cubic foot of space

    Maybe...just maybe... still a 90% chance the subs just flap around and make air wooshing noises
