    This is an odd box to me

    I TOTALLY trust scottie johnson and think he knows 100% of what hes doing....

    BUT can someone explain to me this...

    He told me to build a 4.5 cube box with 4 - 4" aeroports...

    Now.. why use those ports and not regular....

    Just want to LEARN...

    boxes with aeroports have been doing extremely well in SPL street setups..

    haha yeah man, i saw that too, just bought some PVC...you should be alright with PVC as long as you sand down the edges so they are round.

    to me, it seems like you could produce similar results if you were to use pvc and a router w/ a round off bit to produce the flare....

    have you ever seen an aeroport? you cant get but 1/4" flare on the end of the PVC inside of the box... Aeroports have a MUCH larger flare than you can get with PVC

    No, Andy, I'm sure the context is fine.
