Default Aero port question

I was wanting a new enclosure for my sub but I was thinking what if I just changed my aeros or added some more? Im trying to get more port area and a lower tuning. My box right now has 2 4" ports that are,I think,around 12-13" long including the flares. The enclosure is supposed to be roughly 4cbft and tuned to around 35-36hz. I am wanting more port area for my sub b/c I dont think the 2 4" ports are enough to get the most out of my sub. And I would also like to drop the tuning to around 32hz. If I replaced the 2 4" ports for 2 6" ports how much port area would that give me and what length would they need to be to get a tuning around 32hz? Or what if I added one or two more 4" ports? How long should they be and what would the port area be then?

Im just trying to save some money by not buying a new enclosure. Any suggestions?

Sub is a 15" Ascendant Audio Havoc,if you need to know that. If you need any more info just ask. Thanks

the 6" aeros would have to be 16.5 each to drop it down to 32hz

Yea I tried that but when I did it it said the 6" ports would have to be 32.8" straight length and 33.8 flare length to get a 32hz tuning. How did you come up with they only have to be 16.5" long?

Im pretty sure when you fill out that form after you select the size and how many ports you need,the lengths it shows on the side are for each one. Meaning each 6" port would have to be around 33" long to get a 32hz tune. I could be wrong tho.

Ok so I think Ill just stick with the 2 4" ports then. I would still like a little lower tuning so Ill just get some more 4" tube so I can add a few inches to my ports I have now. Thanks for your help everyone.

instead of that try putting poly fill in the box first, its will increase the perception of box size up to 20% allowing for a lower harder peak and hence will lower tuning.
