    Port help

    My design calls for a 6" diameter PVC aeroport. I can't find anything that size anywhere. Can I use two 3" ports instead of one 6" port?

    What are the final goals? ie: Net volume and tuning?

    Tuned to 32 hz:





    as you can see the aeroport diameter is 6", but i couldn't find PVC in that size so i bought two 3" PVC pipes... how do i have to cut these to keep my 32hz tuning?

    Looks like its a 6in port but pipe thickness is 1/4in 6 1/2 outer diameter you can use a thinner wall pipe if you can find one

    i bought two 3" PVC pipes... with the 6" port it had to be 13" in depth to reach 32hz... do i have to cut both 3" PVC's to 13" to reach this same tuning? or should they be longer/shorter?

    Re: Port help

    That box is way to big for a single 6" port.. Why not shoot for a single 8"?

    Re: Port help

    2 4" ports is close to a single 6". Just go to parts express and order a 6" aero port kit or you local sewage supply store should have 6" drain pipe.



    Here is my feedback Thread: http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showth...ght=fasfocus00

    Re: Port help

    One 6" port at 13" long = like 28" of port on a 4.5 cuft box.. That's tiny.

    Any particular reason you're shying away from port area?

    Re: Port help

    Just go with the 'general rule' of port area.. 9-13 inches of port per cube if using an aero or 13-16 inches per cube for a slot.
