    Is two 4" aero's enough for 3.6 cubes?

    I've been reading up on aero ports vs. slot ports...it sounds like you only need half the port area with aero ports? Right now I can either do 50 in^2 of port area with a slot port or use two 4" aeros for ~24 in^2. I've only really used slot ports in the past and I was wondering if I would get any port noise out of the two aeros.

    i've never heard that you only need 1/2 the area with aero's.

    It depends on the subs.

    3.6 cubes, is that for 2 12's or 1 15? The sub will make a difference if it'll be enough or not. You should be fine with 2 4's, but it depends.

    A good rule of thumb is 12-16" of port per cubic foot, but I guess it can vary depending on the sub.
