Default external port

Ive built boxes for my z28 before and its a huge pain in the ass. I was thinking of building the box and using a homemade aero for an external port. I would be able to make my box more narrow and route the port where I wanted it.

Are there any drawbacks to doing it this way?

Not as long as the length for tuning and amount of port area is correct

It may toke a little placement adjustment with the box/ port location in car to find the sweet spot

That was actually one of the advantages I was thinking of .

internal/external sound the same ... box volume / tuning / port area are the only differing factors

I have been much happier with my external aero than when it was internal. Gained airspace, can adjust tuning in a few seconds to go from daily to SPL, can "aim" the port, and call me crazy but I think having something that looks like a massive cannon barrel pointed at the front glass looks badass! If I was working with a camaro hatchback I would be aiming the port at the back glass at a short angle towards the front to try and bounce the waves to the dash off the glass... it will take some playing with to get it right but would be pretty sweet once its right.
