    Hey guys,
    I live in the los angeles area and need to know where I can find 6" (by 25" length) diameter pvc tubing to make a port. L have checked the big stores hd and lowes and a few other places and the biggest they carry is 4" id. Any suggestions would be great.

    If I can not get 6" tubing, would dual 4" x 21" be an ok substitute? Modeling shows about 3-4ms more air speed in port @20 hrtz compared to the 6" X 25".

    This is for a strke av15 in a 8cf enclosure with @ 500rms into it.

    Thank you in advance[​IMG]

    I'd actually prefer dual flared 4" ports over one non-flared 6".

    Did you try looking in the waste pipe section of the stores? Also, try Mcmaster

    Have you considered using 6" ID sonotube for the port. It is fairly common and availabe at HD, Lowes etc.

    I got mine at a Plumbing Supply store (for contractors and plumbers, not really a general public store) that I found in the Yellow Pages. Unfortunately, I had to buy a long section of it, of which I still have over 6 feet of it, I think.

    The Lowe's in my area carry the green PVC drain pipe. You have to ask for it since it's not out in a big bin

    Actually this is for my friends sub enclosure. I will pass along all the great info. Thanks again[​IMG]

    Also isn't there a rule of thumb to go by, if a port is x in diameter, you do not want to go longer than y length? I thought it was 5x. Is this correct?
