  • Dayton Classic Revival port location

    Going by the drawings Paul C has for the Dayton Classic Revival cabinets, the port, positioned in the rear of the box, would directly located behind one of the woofers.

    This doesn't look right to me. Paul says you can put the port in the front or back. So, I was thinking of locating the port in the front, like right below the bottom woofer.
    What is your take on the subject?

    Paul has used this same cabinet dimensions on many projects. The port can be front or rear as he said. If you decide that the back is more to your liking, you can move it so it does not end up directly behind the woofers. Just move it up or down as you need.

    Many prefer to put the port on the rear to help reduce midrange"leakage" or sounds that you don't really want to hear from the woofers. Others just don't like the look.

      That would work just fine. And would probably look pretty cool, too.
      Isn't it about time we started answering rhetorical questions?
