    Anyone know where I can find some 6" port flares? I've looked at a few of the usual suspects & found nothing. Can someone help me out?

    Get the 6" Aeroports from Parts Express. Buy drain tubing from your local Home Depot/Lowes. (Plumbing section) Simple as that. [​IMG]

    I ordered 2pr from www.audiophiles-online.com
    I don't think they actually have any, but the online form accepted the order. I'll let you know if they actually ship any.

    If any local car audio shop sells Lightning audio products you can buy the aeroports from them. Its just what I did.

    If you have a local dealer that has them in stock let us know. The lightning Audio dealers in Colo don't have any. My most recent info is that the 6" AeroPorts have been discontinued by Lightning. So it would be nice to have a few pairs on hand.

    ThomasW,

    The dealer I had get me mine took about a month to get them in. They were back ordered three times before they finally sent them . I had no idea they were being discontinued. May explain why I had such a hard time getting mine. Too bad, if I could get them I have no problem with fedex'n them. Shipping might be expensive from Ontario. Though $50-$60 Canadian is easier on the poket book than $50-$60 US.

    I emailed lightning audio and I'll call the audio store tommorrow and see if they can still get them and how many. I may just buy a few then send them out when people need them. Its too bad there so hard to come by.

    ThomasW,

    Don't mean to bring up this thread but just to let you know I'm still looking. Haven't got an email back from lightning audio and I got the dealer to call and ask if they have any, and how many?. If you want I can email you when I get news.
