    2 4 inch ports or 4 2 inch ports?

    just wondering which one would be better for port noise, im thinkin the 2 4 inch ports but i could use some advise.
    got 2 10 w6's and my current box is getting some port noise and i wanted another one tuned lower anyway,
    thanks

    also, does it matter which way they face? could the ports fire out the side of the box? This is my first box

    2 4" would be shorter than 4 2" as far as port length at the same tuning,

    4 2" ports has the same port area as a single 4" port. The dual 4" ports would have to be longer because there is twice as much port area.
