    One port for 2 subs?

    Can I only have one port for an enclosure that has 2 subs, or do I need to have 2 ports?

    No man you need 2 ports for each sub!!! So you need 4!!!


    Really one is fine and in some cases optimal...

    As long as you're taking into consideration the port noise, then one is fine. Just don't have a small port for a lot of output. That's the only thing I would watch out for.

    That would be more of a problem if he was going with two ports. Because they would be smaller than one large port...

    Re: One port for 2 subs?

    Sweet!

    I'm going to do 2 subs in a net 3 foot cubic ported box, tuned to 35 Hz, pushing 900 W RMS per sub.

    Any other considerations?

    What size subs?

    1.5 Cuft per sub seems pretty small...

    The subs are 12" TC-9's

    I'm putting the box in a Sentra, so space is limited, what with the box, 3 amps and wiring.

    Per TCSounds' website as well as REAudio's (compared TC-9 cpecs to RE's SX and SE enclosure recommendations just for the sake of comparison) they should be okay in a 1.5 cubic foot/sub enclosure. It's not optimal; 2 cubic feet is optimal. But, they both said 1.5 cubic feet per sub is okay. They said to tune the box to 32-35 Hz, btw.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong in my assumption a 3 cubic foot box is okay.

    My e12a.22 has a recommendation of 1.5cF ported per sub

    And it's a TC-9 derived motor

    FWIW.
