    aero or not to aero?

    i just ordered my new (well new to me) RE sx 12's. i plan to be putting them in their reccomended "compact" enclosure. which is 1.5 ft each tuned to 35hz.

    im not the best carpenter, and ive never used aeros before. its easy for me to screw up a slot vent. ive done it before.

    my question is, which will be louder, which will sound better? aeros or slot vent

    and how many/how big should the aeros be?

    If you believe you're stupid then you're stupid. You start gravitating to all things stupid . And stupid **** follows you where ever you go. You are surrounded by stupid because you chose to be that way. Someone told you you were stupid so you believed that. And the demons in hell accomadated you and set out to make all things stupid happen for you.
