    Dude, I don't really know anything about those AQ's, but I'm pretty sure either of your port options seems like a small amount right?

    Hm.... I dunno. I dont completely understand how all that works. I know aqs like larger then normal boxes. The box they are going in is 2 layers birch, its about 3 inches thick with rods threw it lol... No flex..... Just need to get the port right.

    General rule of thumb is 12sq.in. per cube or more I believe, though I think the lower you tune the less port area you can safely get away with. Don't know how big your box will be, but if it's going to be big, then figure around 8 cubes net.

    Again, I don't know that much, so trust something the experts say over my word

    How much power will you have? What vehicle?

    8.5cubes net, 20^2 center port, tune whatever is loudest for your vehicle. Use a port reducer for daily....
