    Re: one 3" port?

    I would say yes it will be louder because it will allow more free air to flow.

    How many watts do you have on the speaker first of all?

    Re: one 3" port?

    2cuft is kind of small for a 12" doing SPL

    Re: one 3" port?

    what the hell is everyone in this thread talking about?!?!?!

    i don't think this box is for spl. the slot ported one he linked to is tuned to 27hz, not an spl box!

    the linked box has 20in^2 of port area. decent for a 12" but could be more.

    a 3" round port has about 10" of port area, waaaay too small. port noise for sure.

    raising tuning will increase peak spl (theoretically).

    if you want to do round ports, it should be at least two 3" ports, if possible two 4" ports.

    if you do a long box like the one in the link you could probably handle the 30" length needed for a 32Hz tuning frequency( with two 4" ports).

    this is probably best/easiest for your situation:

    more port area, slightly higher tuning, larger box volume.

    (lower port air velocity, higher peak spl, flatter response)

    Re: one 3" port?

    i think two 4" ports will be a little much for 2cuft man..

    exactly what i said about this box not being made for spl.
