    Port Question

    Ok im Fiberglassing my Tire well and putting a brahma 15 in there. I fiqure it would be much easier to put a circle port in it. I went to do a port Calculator and it said 3 inch diameter and it only has to be 3.14 inchs long....... does that sound right? it seems short i wanted to tune it to 28Hz Seems alittle short to me.

    Re: Port Question

    i had a similiar experience when i built my
    round ported box...

    everyone says you need ten billion square
    inches of port and this and that...

    i have a 3" diameter port thats 6.26" long
    is tuned to ~32hz and i get no port noise...

    i would say your port is right on...

    now if you WANTED to have a gigantic
    port you could go with dual ports or
    quad ports or a larger diameter would
    make it so you needed more length...

    but for a spare tire well fiberglass job
    i dont suppose you want to have to deal
    with all that...

    i would say go with it...

    Re: Port Question

    one 3'' port seems a little small especially for a brahma 15.

    only about 6-7 sq.in. of port area

    Re: Port Question

    flare on the inside would help. if you can, find some 6" pvc pipe. that would help. make sure you sand down all the edges after you cut it.

    you can always mount the port like the baffle, and stretch the fleece over it if its too long. thats what id do. it would look cool too.

    Re: Port Question

    According to this site you need 10 inches of port diameter if it were PVC or 80 square inches for a slot ie: 4 by 20 slot. With a 15 I'd use no less than dual 4 but you can try more or less.

    Re: Port Question

    depending on the power that is going to it, and if his trunk is sealed or whatnot, should depend on port velocity.

    personally, id go with around half the Sd (cone area) of the driver. maybe a little less. but then again, the box would increase in size. but thats the beauty in fiberglass. you can make it as big as you want
