    so you want to use one aero?
    honestly I did a smallish box install for my ex's car with an L7 12 in it, and had no port noise at all, i didnt have jack for power so the port velocity couldnt have been that much... but i mean it will work but when I have modeled out boxes TYPICALLY it seemed that the one port boxes would be very peaky compared to two port boxes that had a bit more range from the tuning to the F3 (-3db point from tuning hz)

    maybe do a 6" aero, but you'll lose a little more box volume...

    It's got a 4" vc and your giving it 1000w? It's not going to be pushed at all so you should be fine with 1 4" aero. But that sub could be much, much louder then what your going to be doing with it now

    12.5 sq in of port area isn't enough. I know the flare pushes it up to being about 15-18, but you're still gonna have port noise.

    Size of the voice coil does not indicate power handling. Fi Q next to me takes 1200 all day long in the home theatre, while the D6G next to me with a 3" coil also would cook under 150.

    Ok, just saying the 4" voice coil spl subs all need at least 2000w to get moving!
