Default toilet bowl flange=port flare?

Just spitballing ideas besides buying PE ports in case I get too frustrated trying to flare some PVC.

Think it'll work OK?

Maybe not the toilet flange, but something like this+a coupler?

Why not just buy the aeros
Will be cheaper than those
And flairing isn't too bad once you have a mold

I was thinking about that. My brother said he just picked up some the other day for $3/piece. I just grabbed the link for the reference.

And I'm going to try to do it myself for the experience. i was just looking into the plan b for if I rage quit.

I wouldn't consider that much of a flare, but it would work just fine. It would make mounting a hell of lot easier, lol.

this was my whole thought. The flare helps, but with my idea for the port I doubt I will have too much port noise. ~ 4 cubes, ~50 inches of port. Sure it could help efficiency, but as long as it gets done I'm good.

Seems like a decent plan b. At least I won't have a rigged port (pvc witch screws in it. Not flared) or just gluing and hoping the box doesnt eat it. ,

Instead of starting a new thread.

I've got an alphasonik 15. 4 cubes @ 34 is the recommended. I'm going to run it tucked in the corner of my hatch (96 cherokee). Sub up behind the rear seat, port firing driver side.

My question is its either 4 4". 50 sq of port, or 2 6 inch ~55 sq of port.

22" wide 20" tall 25" deep. Either way the port goes it will be 4 4" 22" long, or 2 6" 22" long. I'm accounting port flare into those lengths so were not "dude its stuck on the other end of the box port no breathing"

That's the consensus this far. On paper a single six doesn't spec out. 1 6" 10" long. 34hz, 28 sq of port / 6 sq to cube. Box is now 20 x 20 x 25 to make up for the loss of port displacement

And I know, paper usually won't match real world. I'm just trying to build one box and be done for a while, but I've never designed my own box so I don't know what's acceptable on paper let alone how it will act in the real world.
