    6" Precision Port vs Slot port ( single 15")

    I just had a box built for a single 15"

    It will be for a Q.

    The cutout is for a 6" precision port, and it will be tuned to 32~33.

    My question is, will a single round 6" port port be enough? or will i need more.

    Some tell me it needs alot more, maybe two ports, and others tell me it should be loud, and sound excellent.

    The port for a 32hz tuning needs to be around 15" or so. And two of them nees to be around 32 inches. lol. So i dont think a dual port box would work.

    Let me know what you guys think?

    My main goal is to have ZERO port noise.

    If a slot port is done correctly then you shouldn't have this problem, however a 6" aero port would ensure that your main goal is achieved. My vote is for the 6" aeroport, but then again I'm a little biased since I use them on my box.

    How did you get 6" x 15" = 32-33 Hz?

    go with a slot port, aero ports are notorious for port noise. When i did a modeling with one 6" port you will still get a slight turbelance. Go with a slot or 2 4"

    You can probably get away with it because I've seen many do 2 4" internally (and 2 4's is nearly equivalent to 1 6). However, I've always done 3 4" on my boxes and they're loud.

    A single 6"= roughly 28 sq in and two 4"s= roughly 24 sq in.

    A 6" aero = about 27". I believe a single larger port is more desirable than several small ones also. I've used two 4" aeros on a 15 before with no noise so I think the one 6" is fine.
