    Icon30 2 x 2" diameter ports = port noise?

    Will i get port noise if i use 2 2" diameter ports that are 7in long and tuned to 30hz? Thats the number loudspeaker101.com gave me. These are going in my custom fiber glass box so length is an issue and i know jack about ports.

    Ok lets see...

    well i meant 600rms each...so 1200 watts total, my bad.

    ok, i know i must sound like a total noob but...what?

    im just totally confused. usually i catch on to things quickly and all but ports have been giving me the toughest time.

    So with two 2" dia. ports they both need to be 36 in long for a 30 hz tuning?

    ooooooooh...now im getting it....

    Whenever i heard port area, i was thinking the area that the whole tube took up. i dont have that much area to work with length though. My box is only 7 1/2in deep and 16in back.

    Thanks Jmac for putting up with my noobness. Heres my fiberglass box, I AM NOT about to build another one anytime soon. This winter im going to build a huge box in the back of my winter car (trooper) though.

    If not, grab a 1 liter container and pour liter after liter into the box until it's full and don't forget count every liter you pour in ...
    yes. i used a one gallon container and converted it to sq ft.

    ------------------------------------------

    or

    2.2 ft^3 gross volume
    - 2 x 0.1 ft^3 driver displacement
    - port displacement
    ------------------------------------------
    4 feet on the widest and 3 on the shortest. and its the the first option.

    Hey, im going to get pipe, elbows, and carpet to finally finish my box off. Do i need an FMOD if i run my box unported at 37 hz or if i port my box to 30-32hz. If i need one for either one which frequency cutoff do i get?
