you talking about how its angles in the back?

i originally built the port in a true L-shape, but if wouldnt fit in the box. (lmao, dee-dee-dee)

so i just cut it and made it angled. it actually helps air flow cause it makes the port not have a 90degree turn.

What if the box had more than 1 sub would a L shaped port still work?

yep...just make sure you have enough airspace for both subs.

ex: 2 12's...3.75-4.5cuft net

2 more questions for you marshall, If i had 2 subs and put the port in the middle of the box it wouldnt matter which sub the L part faces right?...And what could i use(that i can buy online)to hold the port in that is easy to remove so i can change ports?

1) i wouldnt put an L-shaped port between 2 subs...put the subs on one side and the port on the other. [OO {}]

2) use t-nuts and bolts.

it alows the port to curve for longer port lengths

when the port length needed to tune a box to a certain freq. is longer than the box is deep...you can make a bend in your port to get the needed length.

if you have the L pointing to one sub and not to another, you may get some odd turbulance in the box.


but you could have an L port w/ the port angling up or down. (not toward either sub)
