    Converting to ported...

    So I've decided to add some internal aero's to my sealed box.


    How should I go about doing this? I want to add like two 6'' aeros I think. I want to tune my box around 32hz, my box is 2.0^3ft sealed.

    Re: Converting to ported...

    Ported boxes need more internal volume than sealed boxes. If you start with a sealed box and just add port to it, you will end up with an internal volume probably too small for a sealed box, much less a ported box.

    Build a completely new box.

    Re: Converting to ported...

    Honestly, I have the biggest box I can fit with my current vehicle. 2 cubes is the largest I can fit behind the bench seat in my single cab.


    I was going to add some aero's because I think I could get away with it, it's only the small side for ported, but I think it can be down.


    Anyone agree? If so, explain to me how I should add these aeros.

    Re: Converting to ported...

    when you're putting in the areo's , have them outside the box instead of inside, this would double the jump gap of the various instances near the woofer

    2 cubes @ 32 hz with 2 6" aeros = really long ports. Not gonna happen in a single cab. It'd be better to try it with 2 4" ports. 2 4" ports gives you roughly 24 sq inches of port.

    this is as close as your going to get to a good ported box without building a new one

    Re: Converting to ported...

    So, two external 4'' ports?


    How to I go about installing these? Cut out a slightly smaller than 4'' hole in the side of the box, shove the ports in, and seal the edges?

    Re: Converting to ported...

    Re: Converting to ported...

    Yeah, I know about port length and tuning.

    "thehardknoxlife" said 2 4'' aeros, with 24 sq. inches of port. He was replying to my post so I thought that would be around 32hz.

    Anyone wanna calculate the port length/width I need to port a 2.0^3ft box to ~32 hz.

    if you used 2 4" aeros in a 2 cube box each port would have to be atleast 31" long

    You got it backwards. Increasing port size will make the ports longer. 2 3" ports will be fine with most 12"s. Heck 1 4" port will be fine for 1 12 as long as it's flared and your not worried about putting up db's on a meter.

    Re: Converting to ported...

    That is going to sound horrible; don't try it. You might be able to get away with it with a NEW enclosure and using only one 12 instead of two.

    Re: Converting to ported...

    Well... allright then. Guess I'm stuck since the consensus is that going from RSD12D's to a more spl oriented sub wont be much louder.

    I just want ported sigh.

    Re: Converting to ported...

    if you want ported, get two 10's or 1 12 and build a proper box. there is no point in having a quality woofer in a terrible enclosure. The general consensus is that the box is as important if not more regarding the overall sound of the woofer.
