Aero ftw only need 9-13sq in port area compared to the 12-16 for a slot and if done right with flares possibly 2-3db gain also they take up almost half the CU Ft so if space is limited there's another positive its really matter of opinion

very well said for a newb!!! LOL!
But all correct for the most part. 2-3 db gain is pushing it though....more like a 1 to 1.5 db gain (with tuning etc all equal).

I have AQ hdc318's that I've used both slots and aero's. Hands down the aeros are better. The biggest two differences is air movement and resonances. I am louder with a little less power with the aeros tuned to 32hz and the slot was 35hz. Slot ports tend to have nasty resonances at and below tuning. You get none of this with Aeros and when you play at or below tuning it is as clean of a sound as any other frequency. The other big difference is the air movement. Even with less port area you can feel the air movement in the front seats of a large SUV using aeros, which is not the case with the slot. In my experiences aeros are better in every aspect and well worth the cost.
