    aero port help

    I built a box for a buddy, total box volume before displacement is 3.34cu.ft

    Its for 2 low end Soundstream 15s, like 400w rms each.

    I want to do aero ports, but not sure what size and how deep.

    I was thinking maybe 2 2in aeros at like 12in deep each or 1 big one?

    Any ideas?

    Re: aero port help

    These things dont move at all, and wont handle alot of power, Im just worried about the subs bottoming out

    honestly, you should go to 1 15" sub and use a single 4" aero port. you'll probably have a better result b/c that'll be a more optimal enclosure for the sub than a box that is too small. or make it a sealed enclosure and use some polyfill.

    Re: aero port help

    the older model SS subs were low power sq designs the box is plenty big for them you only need 8-10 sq in of port as well for them they dont move enough to cause bad port velocity. a single 4" per chamber is plenty.

    Re: aero port help




    Built it today, opted for a 3in aero @ ~5in deep. Comes out to 30hz tuning if I am correct.

    If i sounds bad Ill add another 3in, but I think this will be fine

    Any opinions?

    Re: aero port help

    Needs more box.. and needs more port area..
    You will need to increase the length on each 3 inch to maintain tuning..
    IMHO at LEAST a 4 inch aero.... just my opinion.

    Re: aero port help

    I feel like if I go bigger on the port I will be free airing these subs.

    I have a 2 cube box with a single 4" aero and it's GREAT!

    now go back and read what subs he has
    you have dif subs
    the xmax determines port area. his subs have next to nothing for xmax and they are very efficient and need nearly no port.

    Re: aero port help

    I posted a thread a while back asking why people always go by box size for port area .. when it seems like Xmax would have a much greater effect...
    I got ****** responses

    Re: aero port help

    thats cuz most everyone here has subs that are 20-30 mm xmax so a general rule of thumb for that is 12-16 sqinches per cf which for spl is correct but IMO is horrible for sq
