allows for a bigger port and can eliminate the chance of port
noise... but my goal was to increase output and low end
"authority" while keeping a small enclosure... i succeeded
to my ears as now my single 12"SE sounds louder than
my previous dual 12" SE's sealed... *****in' i know!!!
having said that... a 4" port will help with port noise... but it
will have to be longer than a 3" port... depending on how
deep your box is i dont know if it will effect your decision...
i built a 2.1^3 box tuned to 32hz with a single 3" X 6.25"
circular port and i get little to no port noise... and certainly
nothing i can hear in the drivers seat of my car... there is also
the idea of multiple ports... say 3 3" diameter ports... while
this will pretty much eliminate port noise the ports will be
significantly longer thus forcing your box to be bigger for
a given internal volume after displacements...
ill stop there before i start rambling...
