    Icon31 Aeroports or slots?

    I have two RE Audio SE-x10D2s and i was wanting to try aeroports because I've heard great things about them, but i have no experience with them at all, nor do i know how to tune the box with the aeros, or even design a box with them, so should i stick with slot ports or go for the aeros? i love the looks of aeros compared to slots, and i think they sound better. and i am looking for 30Hz. if you think aeros, could you help me make a design?
    i'll post up some designs as i think of them.

    The separate chamber box is [1.3cu ft with a 2" aero, flared, at 6.76" long] = each chamber, supposedly tuned to 30Hz like desired, using psp-inc's port calculator on their site.

    Second Box is a single chamber, obviously, with 3.01cu. ft with two 3" aeros that are 12.85" long and also flared. This one is also tuned to 30Hz, according to PSP.

    Are these accurate, and would they be what i'm looking for (i'd prefer the separate, unless the single chamber would be louder)? Remember, first time aero box designer here..

    Re: Aeroports or slots?

    This is the problem with aeros in smaller boxes. You either need one that's too long or too small in diameter. You realize that a 2" aero is only 3 square inches of port, right? That's not nearly enough for a car audio sub. And a 3" is pushing it. I've used a single 3" in 1.5 and it had pretty f'n bad port noise. It was in the trunk so it didn't bother me much, but it's choking it.

    Either make the box bigger so you can use a pair of 4's or a single 6" or do a slot.

    Re: Aeroports or slots?

    I was hoping aeros would work. Should i just stick with slotted ports then?

    Re: Aeroports or slots?

    i've used both slot and aero's in my boxes. (i am in no way an expert builder but i try lol) i personally like the aero's more, easier to tune and less wood to cut and glue.. try using the "torres box calculator" google it and im sure you can find a link to download it.. that will deff help you with your box design and tuning.. im currently running a single 10 in a 1.45cuf box with a 3" aero tuned to 33hz and it gets loud and low, no port noise as far as i can hear. only issue with aeros imo, they cost more money! gl.

    Re: Aeroports or slots?

    I started building with Aeros and I haven't built a slot ported enclosure since. I would go with 2 4" ports and bend them to follow along the back wall of the enclosure. This configuration resembles an L shaped slot port though so I don't really think it would make any difference.

    Re: Aeroports or slots?

    i found Torres' box calculator but i'm having some troubles trying to figure out the right design cause the RE audio definitely doesn't work with that..so i may need help with the interface of Torres'...

    What's the max dimensions you can go with the box? What size are you looking for for 2 subs 3ft^3 @30?

    Re: Aeroports or slots?

    I have not really found issues with flared ports and port noise, I normally only use them when there is limited space and the design will allow for the use of them.

    As for your setup, you will likely not see any issues from 3" ports to be honest. You may end up with a little less output then you would get with a slot port or a singular large flared port though.

    i will say that the re audio calc is easier to use, but not as accurate as torres... what issues are you having with it? ill try to help.. also that "help" box on the torres calc can give ya some good info if your confused about some of the diff option boxes.. also, not sure if it is a universal issue with it but when i enter dimensions on torres and then drastically change them it gives me some crazy numbers. if that happens just restart the program.

    Re: Aeroports or slots?

    I would try to use a slot port. The issue you run into with aeros, smaller boxes, and low tuning is the length of the aeros, usually causing them not to fit in the box (if proper port area).

    Re: Aeroports or slots?

    I like areo's in boxes but it would be nice to know how big he can go. If he has like 8ft of useable space he could go very big with the aeros.
