In my experience you get close to 6db gain if subs are "stacked" (using same sub with same power) and 3db or so if they are spread apart in the room. Is this correct? He says you...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    As per title, Just wondering why two ports are required to be longer than a single port? For instance if I tune a cab with a single 10" port, but the port velocity is too high and I add another port, these ports are then required to be 22.5" long each?
