Precision Port 4" Flared Speaker Cabinet Port Tube Kit
Precision Port 4" Flared Speaker Cabinet Port Tube Kit is rated 4.7302 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use/ durable portBought this port for a custom ported box that goes behind my back seat of my 2008 tacoma double cab. I made the base depth of the box to be 8 inches and the port flare diameter is about 7.25 so it was cutting it kind of close. I probably should have gone with a 3 inch port so I didn't have to modify this one. This port is working great so far. I used standard PVC glue to hold it together. Running a 10" Alpine Type R at 500 rms and I have to port tuned to about 39 Hz. I cut the port to an overall length of 16 inches. Definitely go with a flared port, it sounds awesome in my truck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't play well with Dayton portsPrecision and Dayton ports of the same size do not interchange, such as I need two 26 inch long ports and have to use a 90 at about 14 inches. I also bought Dayton 4" 90's and the lengths assuming they'd work together. They don't. So with some glueing and piecing together, I've managed to make what I need, but the two ports are different, so don't make the same mistake I did. Other then that, it's great and Parts Express always get's me what I need fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised, good fitment, good documentationThis was exactly what I needed to finish my sub build. The parts fit together perfectly, and the necessary calculations are provided in case you don't have a box design program or something else.The only niggle I have is that it would be really great if they included a small packet of PVC adhesive, as this is not something most people keep around. It would save some folks a trip to the store for maybe $1 additional cost. It's a very minor gripe.Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best port ever!!I purchased two of these ports for a custom box. I've always been told that flared ports sound better then jus straight pcv pipe. So i decided to test the difference. I installed straight pipe ports first and listened to it, sounded good. I then installed these flared ports and I was blown away by the difference in sound. It sounded sooo much cleaner, louder, and tighter. I highly recommend if you want a loud and good sounding box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent portThis port is undoubtably strong enough for any build, and long enough for nearly any application. It is also fairly cheap considering I bought 4 of these so I saved the $5 or so but I have the 4 of them 13 inches long firing up along with subs faceing up in an 8.5-9 cubed box, and they knock with no problems at all. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beats PVC pipe and looks and sounds a lot better tooused 3 of these in a dual 18" subwoofer cabinet with no huffing or port noisethe flares look great and are easy to flush mount for a professional look*tip; instead of using PVC pipe glue just use duct tape so you can change the port length if needed, also I always mount the rear of the port in an internal brace to keep the port from just "hanging" in the box

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precision Port brings an end to chuffingthe 4" precision port is awesome! I installed it in a 1.4ft^ft3 box tuned to 32hz (port length unchanged) with 2 8" subs (at around 200W). The air movement was at around 19m/s (which might creating port noise) but this port does not chuff at all and sounds decent! Tried playing around by putting a sheet of paper near the port, it rips it with ease. :)Instead of using PVC glue, I used the ABS glue, which bonds them together permanently. ABS literally melts the plastic on contact, so don't apply too much.It's a solid port, and I would highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy fast goodI put one of these in a pro bass cab. it had a small port and was chuffing at high volumes. I was also dissatisfied by the LF power and color.This port tube did the trick. the cab is warmer, smoother, and has MUCH better LF response- the low B is kickin.Install was easy and I found cutting the tube to their recommended lenth (calculation sheet included) was the best of all the different lengths that I tried. I needed to use speaker gasketing tape (also available here at PE) to seal the vent. My only recommendation is this- instead of 4 screws to mount, 6 screws would be more secure. That is easily done with a drill and screws. . .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice, FragileWorked great, little PVC glue and away you go! Be careful not to over-tighten the screws used to hold it in, it doesn't give much and will crack...personal experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound,Even Better Price!!Same as a PNR Port or Aero Port. These give you much cleaner bass than regular ports and raises your decibals. I used one port for One High Excursion 600W RMS 10" and it sounds great now i just need a bigger amp ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are terrific, I bought 8 of them!Great Product !They have a website at http://www.psp-inc.com/tools.html that will calculate the total length of the ducted tuned port. The first number is without the flares attached & the second number is with the flares attached. The difference between the 2 numbers is the length of pipe you need to fit between the flares!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These ports are hugeThese ports do the job. I had 2 12" Polk momos in a sealed box in my car. I decided to buy a pair of these and port a larger sealed box I already had. Installation was simle, if you have a drill and a jigsaw. The hole needs to be very large, it is actually the same size as the inner flare, as you use that as a template. Instructions include the math on how to obtain the correct length of the tube, but you need to know the volume of your box and the desired frequency you want the tube to be tuned to. I don't hear any port noise at the max volume I listen to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best portI have had many subwoofer boxes mostly slot ported boxes this port is great i have three in my box for a 15" monster subwoofer and the quality is great i will always buy these ports for my boxes in the future. the first to i bought i paid 60 for the pair, i needed one more so i started looling on the net and found this web sight and found them for 13 so this is a great deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alternative to slot portingI purchased this to replace a standard cardboard port in an enclosure I built for a Diamond Audion D6 15" sub. I am very happy with the cosmetics of the tube. The face does have some texture to it, which may not be appealing to some, but not that noticeable. It does require you to cut a larger hole, near 6.25" for the 4" port so if you are building your enclosure ahead of time, remember to allow enough room for the flange. Flange is much larger than it appears in photo.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cheap, solid, but uglyThis port tube is very solid, and I imagine it would work well. However, sine I am going to be veneering my subwoofer, I want something that looks classy. This does not. If you look at the picture, you can sort of see the front flange has this fake leather appearance embossed in the plastic. It is hideous. This might be a good choice if you are using a rear port, or don't care about looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid ProductI was impressed by the quality of this tube. Very nice quality, sturdy, solid, and sounds great!
Date published: 2009-04-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST HAVE!!This is well worth the money. The plastic is thin and feels flimsy at first. However, it is a non-issue considering the flares provide maximum airflow. I used a very thin cord of sealing putty to ensure that it was airtight. I also painted mine a textured silver color and then painted the outer rim metallic black. I even painted the inside part of the box black. The section of interior wall directly behind the flare. Otherwise you can see the MDF through the port. It looks SICK this way. Much, Much, Much better than a slotted port...go for it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Qualtiy 4" port for less!Most 4" areo ports cost anywhere from $10-$20 dollars more. You can find them cheaper but they are not the quality of these I have purchased 4 so far and will be buying more!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product - Instant Bass UpgradeThis is an awesome port. It really gets rid of port noise, as compared to slot ports.The installation of this 4" port does take some effort to cut the 6.25" hole. I couldn't find a hole saw for this size, so I had to cut it with a jig saw. But the result is worth it.

Precision Port 4" Flared Speaker Cabinet Port Tube Kit

How does the flare affect the overall port length. I know back in the day we used 0.5x the diameter for the length of the flared piece. For example, if using a 3" port, and plans called for a 15" port we would cut the tube to 12". Is that true here also?

Asked by: Special_K
It really depends on the flare itself, but in this case that rule can apply without a problem.

what is the displacement of your 4 inch diameter flared port tube,, I was going to put it in a subwoofer box an I need to know so I can calculate my internal volume

Asked by: bobby35
We can help calculate that for you. The displacement will depend on the length of the port. If used as the full 17 inch overall length, the displacement is 0.14 cubic feet.

What difference does the inside flare make. Cause I can't use it in my situation. Unless I cut the port really short. And I do not want that. It's for a 18 so a lot of air will be moving.

Asked by: derek82
Not adding the rear flare could add slight chuffing or unwanted port noise but it will allow for a shorter port tube.
Answered by: MattP
Date published: 2015-07-06

how short can the tube be ?

Using the port calculator for my speaker cabinet project the difference is only one inch .Is this enough to attach the two flares to ?Is there a minimum tube size requirement to adequately attach the flares together with the pipe ?I can't go to a smaller port size
Asked by: Smokey Lynx
The shortest affective port length you can have is with both flares coupled together (excluding the tube completely) and this will result in a port length of roughly 3-1/2", not including the flared ends.

Does a port always have to be inside the cabinet?

What I mean can I put a port outside rather than inside and sill function the same as if it were inside?
Asked by: VusstoppyPro
No the port does not need to be on the inside, it will do the same thing if it were on the outside of the cabinet.

What glue to use besides PVC Primer/Cement?

I know the instruction say to use PVC Primer/Cement or ABS Cement, but is there something else that would prove to be just as good and a little easier to work with like rubber cement, gorilla glue, etc. Thanks.
Asked by: cnp112
Rubber cement or Gorilla glue will probably work but probably wont last very long. I didn't have any pvc glue so I used some glue for building model cars. Basically anything that will melt the plastic will work and last. Super glue might work well.

Can I extend this port kit to a longer length with 4" PVC Pipe from my local hardware store instead of buying the PSP-4TB plus the connecting rings.

Asked by: cnp112
Yes, this will work fine. However, it would be prudent to bring these flares with you when shopping for your PVC pipe. PVC wall thickness varies according to it's schedule rating, and 4" pipe does not have a have an inside, or outside diameter of 4", it's actually 4.5" outside. The schedule (wall thickness) then determines the inside diameter. Schedule 40 PVC has a wall thickness of just under a quarter of an inch (.237"), so it's inside diameter would be just over 4" (4.026"). That would be your best bet, but I can't definitively tell you that the port flares would fit on the PVC pipe.Another option would be black ABS pipe for a better aesthetic match. Use ABS cement if you use ABS pipe, and PVC cement if you use PVC.You can also buy PVC or ABS "elbows" so you can put bends in your port, allowing you to get more creative with your port placement, since it is so long.The real value of this kit is the flared ends which reduce port noise and turbulence. Whatever type of tube you put between them is inconsequential as long as it is sturdy and of the right length for your tuning.One last thought, you may want to consider using a smaller diameter port, as it will not need to be so long. Remember that the more volume your port takes up, the less useful volume your box has.Whatever you do, have fun!

what can i use to make this port 25 inches long

Asked by: andrewb
You could buy 2 kits and secure two lengths of tube together with a solid external collar brace to achieve the necessary legth. You could use some left over tube, slit it down one side, and secure it around the junction of the 2 pieces you are joining with ABS cement. You could even do that twice, one from the top, one from the bottom for a really secure hold.Though, honestly if your tuning requires such a long port length you may want to look at using a smaller diameter port in order to reduce the necessary port length. A 3" port would need to be much shorter to achieve the same tuning frequency.For example with a 1.5 cubic ft box and a desired 28Hz tuning a 4" dia. port needs to be 25.875" long. Whereas a 3" dia. port only needs to be 14" long to achieve the same 28 Hz tuning in the same box.

What is the "flare radius"?

I have a program (Flare-it) that tells me if I will have port noise. I'm trying to calculate the "flare radius".
Asked by: Ess OH ELL
7.250" OD according to the description. Radius is half that, 3.625"Flared ports don’t necessarily provide any advantage over straight tubes. What would make a difference is if you stuffed the tubes with soda straws to “columnate” the flow like a LASER or Vegas water-fountain nozzles.This WOULD reduce vortex effects but still may not make a noticeable difference. You would have to have expensive analyzing equipment to denote the actual effect.If someone were to give me some of these, I would whack off the front flare mostly, to keep the hole in the baffle smaller. Meanwhile I use PVC or ABS tubing as a default. They are cheap and you can make a "tunable port" by placing a smaller tube inside a larger tube to make a sliding port. Then glue or cut a new one to length. Keep the tunable one as a tool.

Is there a way I can assure the tube will be 16" long?

looking at 2 of these and the tubes needs to 16" long to tune my enclosure to 32 Hz i have 3 10's i am putting in a single enclosure
Asked by: careless
The quick answer to your question is...measure twice. The serious answer is...this kit comes with a 17" tube and two flared ends. Therefore you will need to only cut off an inch of the supplied 17" tube before permanently gluing the two flared ends to your newly created 16" tube.I hope that helps you.
