    POLL: Your opinion/experiences on Flared Aero Ports vs. regular slot port

    Whats up guys.

    I am trying to get an idea of you experiences with the big 6" Flared Aero ports vs. a regular slot port, and if any of you feel that the flared Aeros actually make a difference in output.

    I really liked how one of my boxes that had them performed, but I don't know if the Aero's helped, or if it would have had the same output with a regular port.

    I am bouncing back and forth for what I should do for my next box. It's an extra $35-45 to do the Aero, so I don't know if it's even worth it. Seems like a lot of SPL guys use them, especially externally.

    Just list your opinions and experiences. Thanks guys

    I use aeros because they take up less displacement, are easier to adjust for fine tuning of your system, and you can very quickly change tuning for a street tune or a competition tune. IMO a well built slot port will perform as well as an aero port.

    ***** that they are so expensive, but ontop of what everybody has already said, they also weight alot less than a slot made out of mdf

    It all depends on the application and usage. For a SPL setup, and I mean where SPL is the only goal, aeros will win every time for a multitude of reasons (sciency **** that I don't even understand, but have witnessed). For anything else, save the money and just use a slot port.

    I like mine. I made one with a couple of aluminum flares and part of an 8" quickrete tube from Lowe's. I like it, but I have yet to do any testing to determine if it gives me any more dBs.

    Re: POLL: Your opinion/experiences on Flared Aero Ports vs. regular slot port

    maybe a little... my port right now consists of 1 piece of MDF measuring at 13.5x13.25.... doesnt weight a whole lot at all.

    I do like the ability to shorten it though if I want to change tuning.. only problem is once you do that, I dont think there is any way to extend it again if you don't like it.


    when tuning with these flared ports, where do you measure from??? just the straight tube part, or do measure from tip to tip w/ the flared ends on?

    I believe the 6" psp flares fit thinwall 6" pvc pipe which is cheap so easy to replace the center tube if need be.

    I like using slot ports because they're free and the help brace the box.
