    Sundown Zv3 18 Enclosure

    Got a visit from USPS on Saturday with a big box and it was my Sundown Zv3 18.
    Im now trying to work on getting my box built for this. I know the specs from sundowns site says that these subs call for 4 cubes net. i dont want to go that small because i dont want the box to be over whelmingly peaky.

    So what im looking for is in my enclosure is a box that is loud on music that produces good numbers on Term Lab. For my taste in music and what i listen to im going to tune the enclosure to 38hz.

    ***My question is should i go with 2 6" Aeroports or 1 8" Aeroport? I have 2 6s & the 8" just laying around so i have the ports ready.

    I know pretty much 2 6" Aeros equals 1 8". i have always been told that less aeroports are more efficient then multiple aero ports. Not sure if i should do 2 6's or 1 8.

    **Enclosure specs are as followed:

    Lenth = 36
    Depth = 21
    Height = 19
    ~~5.58 before Displacement
    Power - Crescendo Bc3500 @ 1 ohm

    I would do the one 8" port just because the bigger the port the meaner it looks to me lol. Thats if they both come out to be proper sizes for the box

    LOL......

    but yea they pretty much equal the same thing. the 2 6's are only 6 more total square inches of port then 1 8". 1 8" aero = 50.27 square inches of port and 2 6's = 56.27 square inches of port. and again ive been told less ports are more efficient.

    NVM, i see you said he was in 4 cubes. any way with 4 cubes, that calls for about 48 sq inches of port. so 1 8 is a just a tad more.
