Hello, I was looking at the recommended box size for the Flatlyne 15 and it is at 3 CUFT.  What is the recommended port area?  Thanks.

My main reason for posting my question is when I input the T/S parameters for the Flatlyne in a box modeling program, the results are all wacky.  Usually when I start a new build, I try to model my box to what I feel like will suit my goals.  I am trying to model the smallest port I can get away with a 15 so I can keep my box volume down.  

The spreadsheet, although useful, does not really help me because it just takes into account the box volume and input power, not the subwoofer.  I appreciate the help though.

I apologize, I should have shared already.  Here are both emails I got from IA:

" The recommended ported box specs are 2.5 – 3.5 cubes with 12 – 16 inches of port per cube. Let me know if you need anything else."

"The recommended ported box specs are 2.5 - 3.5 cubes with 12 - 16 inches of port per cube. Yes, you can use a 6" aero port if you keep the box around 3 cubes. "

Nice box. I haven't heard of the duratex before your post. How did you apply it? It looks very nice and I may use it in the future. Hope to see more of this build soon.

Looks great. Where did you get it from ? Is the texture on the smaller end? I used a deck liner from Home Depot once. It had a nice look from far but up close it was real jagged. And it left dust every time I’d move it a bunch.
