    aero port placement?

    I have never used aero ports, and am curious if there is any rule of thumb on where to place external aero ports compared to the box walls and the subwoofer.
    Thanks in Advance
    Dustin

    Keep the sub as far from the opening of the port as you can.

    Re: aero port placement?

    this is a good question, I have heard many rules. From experience and things passed along, you want the sub to be as far away from where the aeroport is INSIDE the box, but you also want the sub as close as possible to where the port exits the enclosure. This is very difficult with aeroports so my advice would be to keep the sub away from aeroport opening inside the box first and foremost. If you don't you'll have all kinds of issues and possibly destroy your sub. If your aeroport is very long, or can bend, or the box is just huge, you may be able to accomodate both rules I've set forth

    The port must be the distance of its diameter away from any wall of the enclosure. The rule of thumb.

    Re: aero port placement?

    goin off psp's site:

    "The Precision Port™ can be placed as close as 1” from the inside wall of the enclosure although it is recommended to keep it as far away from the inside wall as possible."

    I've seen this rule too but I believe hey mean any walls of the vehicle, not the enclosure. I use a 6" aero port and never leave 6" between the port opening and any inside wall.

    Re: aero port placement?

    Thats a good link, hadn't seen that info before. My enclosures tend to have the ports entirely on the outside of the box, much better for higher SPL.

    Re: aero port placement?

    An aeroport is an aeroport whether its on the outside, inside, or halfway in and out. What you choose is install and vehicle dependent.

    If you notice number gains in different ways sweet!
