    Re: Aeroport Fire Position

    What exactly are you asking? Do you want to know if internal port or external are better? Or are you asking which direction to fire the ports? Your post is kind of confusing...

    Re: Aeroport Fire Position

    I think your post is confusing people because you ask direction in the topic and then actual type in your post. Internal and external are not a direction. they are two different types.

    Re: Aeroport Fire Position

    note the spl scores in my sig for the 95 blazer are the aero ports mounted internally in the box. ive read and around it seems the for spl mounting the aero's externally tend to do better....

    Re: Aeroport Fire Position

    I am a firm believer in putting a V behind the mouth of the port on the inside of the box when you mount them internally. A local shop that has a bunch of MECA world titles introduced me to the idea and they swear by it and only used round ports for their builds. If you saw the number of trophies they have sitting around the shop is very convincing that they know what they are doing.



    Leave the opening no less than half the width of the port. In the pic above the gap from the V to port tube is 4 1/4inches with 6inch pvc

    Simply for numbers why not simply just TRY external in your build? Our hobby is interesting... You must go and test test test.

    BTW - If you have the room, go external and point the port(s) into the opposite corner of the meter too.

    Interesting. Even for round ports you've had great luck with the corner build up like that. Hmm, perhaps I'll try it out too. Removable at first, and I'll test SPL scores while at it. It definitely helped with centered full height slot ports, but I'm excited to see what it does for round/round flared ports as well.

    BTW - What are the specs on that enclosure (sticky icky) Kushy_Dreams? Also, dual 12" drivers with single 6" port?

    Re: Aeroport Fire Position

    The reason you see alot of external ports is to keep the box rise down. Smaller enclosures will have a lower rise than larger enclosures. So for better numbers its best to have a smaller enclosure with a large external port for TL numbers.

    experimentation is key when chasing numbers. remember to only change one variable at a time.
