    Re: huge port

    Well it all depends on your install and your specific vehicle. General rule of thumb is if you want something that will put out mad spl then look into tuning your box higher. preferably near the resonant freq of your vehicle.

    Also a helpful resource for determining port dimensions and tuning is winisd, however do not put too much faith into the freq response graphs the program gives you, as they will become radicaly different once in car. Just use it as a reference for tuning.
