    What size is the enclosure? I bet it is too small to just throw some PVC piping in and say its ported. You could do it, but it will sound like ****. Depending on your tuning preference, I doubt it will work. You would need far too much PVC length to get a desired tuning.

    OK that's an 8.5 cuft external, for the internal you need to subtract the width of the boards,
    so how thick is the mdf currently being used ?
    and how low do you want it tuned to?

    this is what i got. if you're going to push more then 600wrms to these then a bigger and longer ports are going to be required to keep port noise down when going below 25hz with like 1000wrms.

    internal volume= 6.96cuft
    tuning freq= 31hz
    number of ports= 4
    port diameter= 4"
    port length= 17.71"

    Re: What kind of pvc pipe do i use?

    thats a pretty big inclosure how many subs do you have in there? what size are they??? sounds like you have enough room to port it but it would help to know what type and number of subs you have....

    i think i only got about 200wrms each sub.. so get 4 pipes? and make 4 holes? 2 in each?

    lol, that's a good thing that it's a large box ... 2 12's ported would need abox that big... (hell even 3+ ft^ for a 12 is a tad big, but i'd say NOT a big deal)

    you got the room dude port that mofo!

    Re: What kind of pvc pipe do i use?

    depends on what your tune freq is... you like rap then I'd tune it to 38ish... Your going to need several ports (maybe 4 4" pvc pipe) maybe more just depends if you have the room or not...

    got any pics of the inclosure??
