port firing into strut tower, bad?

im wondering are there disadvantages to having the port on the side of the box? the port would be a inch or 2 away from the rear strut tower....

im trying to come up with a box design for my 15s and i can only go 34" wide so im left with 2.25"(wide) port that i could fit on the front of the box but its to small and making my tuning below 25

Seen one of Yuli's designs port firing right up close to the strut towers. Likely a lil more than 2" though. Maybe 3 -5"...

it doesnt matter where the port fires period. as long as it loads.

Loads???

I think a 2" gap between the port in your car is far to small though

have you seen my design for duel 15's in a trunk? lol!!



wait you only have 5.66 net before sub and port displacement? so 5.2cubic after sub displacement then you have to factor in port displacement. so you will you be starving these subs for air (space)???
