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 90º 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 90º, 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
