    Rules for port diameter?

    Does anyone know the general rule of thumb when determining the port diameter you'll need? I'm making a ported sub with 2 Koda 8s and I don't know if a single 4 inch flared port will cut it.

    The 2 kodas can displace about 1444 CCs of air at maximum. (I used Xmech in that calculation)

    Good luck finding a 6.5" circle port. Use two 4" ports and you will get 25.12. Plaenty of port surface area for two Kodas.

    2 4 inch ports make for about 19 inches or port length, I hope WinISD isn't getting this wrong.

    a bigger port will increase enclosure efficiency.


    2 of these then use this calculator.

    Say you have 4 ports. Does each port have to be that long, or does the length of all 4 ports need to equal the total length they give?
