    Port area (((aero vs slot)))

    I finally have time to build a box for my two 12" type Rs. Ideally Id like to use aero ports, however I only have room for one 6" aero which really limits me on port area. My box dimensions can't be bigger then 20x36x13 and with a 6"x13" port I'll have 4cu @ 33Hz with 7" of port area. I read the general rule is 9-12 for aero 14-16 for slot.

    I don't have the room to meet either requirements. If I build a slot port, in order not to sacrifice too much vol, my port area will be around 12".

    So its either aero: 4cu @ 33 w/ 7"

    Or slot: (24x3.5x11.5) 3.38cu @ 33 w/ 12"

    Its a trunk application with only 1500rms. Id prefer aero for simplicity and weight. Need some ideas guys.

    You'll be fine with a 6" aero. It may not be optimal but in my opinion I'd rather see the airspace there.

    yep, aeros are more efficient than a slot. theres a pluming store near me that sells 7" aeros, if some place near you has 7" aeros i would go with one over a 6" aero. but the single 6" aero should be more than enough on that power. i was running a single 3" aero with a 12" TC9 on 1100W and had no issues.

    A six inch flared port is optimum for two type r's. These subs perform better with smaller amounts of ports area. 2 to 2.5 cubes per sub tuned to 34.
