    if you are calcing it out properly for the first time, prolly best to go with a straight port.



    JL 6.5's in the front doors
    AP1040 bridged driving them.
    2 Sundown E8's in 1.1cu ft tuned to 30Hz.
    700rms @ 2Ohm Cadence... let's see what the the E8's can take

    Wait do you know what "flared" means?

    Because you can have a flared straight port...

    I think he's talking about a round aero port, if so, there's a lot of science behind it... but they can helpavoid port noise because of the gentle change in diameter (Increasing towards the exit) compared to a striaght round port just ending.

    Re: port size calculation

    you can go with a non flared port as long as you have enough port or more to keep port velocity down.

    along with what alex said, id recommend http://www.bcae1.com/ as well.
