    minimum port area for solo L5 10"

    what is the lowest amt. of port area you would use for a 10" Solo L5. i am in a tight spot here. i have a fiberglass mold of the rear of my truck (reg cab) and i managed to get 2.1 CF per sub. but now comes the problem that i didnt anticipate:

    i dont have enough room to get the reccomended port length to tune it to 38 hz. unless i go REALLY small on the port area, (maybe 13 in^3) . i would MUCH rather use the smaller port area to accomodate the length i am allowed normally, but i dont want a huge loss in output in the process.


    my other thought was to take 2 4" round pieces of PVC 19" or so long and actually angle them in the box somehow. since the front will be glassed, i can make them look ok, no matter what angle.

    and my last thought was to use PVC and some fitting and make it work. could i take say a 6" diameter PVC and route it in as long as i can, then use a 90 elbow and run the length of the box? or would i run into a problem along the way.

    I have already tried making a slot port and angling it 90, but it was too bulky for the sub to even fit. I am at a standstill here. maybe someone can help me out. thanks ahead of time

    Re: minimum port area

    if it helps, a rough dimensional scale on this box is 13" high, 30.5" long, and 11.5" deep. plus or minus a few voids, that is the shape.

    i cant use the length of the box to port it because it goes right into the side wall of my truck. i cant go up through the top because of my amp racks glassed into the box. this is confusing. someone help

    Im thinking PVC. I know for 2 8's the smallest port area was around 13" or so. Id say use the PVC, it doesnt look bad, and you can angle it real cool like.

    Re: minimum port area

    Thanks, but i am still not sure what to do though. should i just go for a 6 inch PVC pipe, with it and put a 90 bend in it, or what? i am afraid of port turbulence like this, as well as not being able to judge the length correctly.
