    Hi All

    After using WinISD, I have calculated a box size etc for my sub, but am having problems locating somewhere in the UK where I can browse bass reflex ports. So far, the only place I can find them is Maplins, who have a choice of 4, none of which are suitable.

    All suggestions welcome

    Yours

    Hi

    I bought mine (4" flared) from Unicar, Leeds, (car audio).

    Some here-
    https://secure.wilmslow-audio.co.uk/acatalog/Wilmslow_Audio_Reflex_ports_53.html

    Flared is preferable as it acks as a larger diameter and reduces turbulance.
    However any tube/pipe will be ok (try a plumbers merchant?) as long as you keep the mach number down.

    I beleive a 4" flared port is about the minumum diameter you should use with a 12" high excursion driver with no more than 300 Watts power.

    Have you a design yet?

    Cheers
