How important is it to have the ports on the same panel as the subs?Is it a must or can I put them where I want them?This will be my first attempt at building a custom ported box so any help will be greatly appreciated....:)

You should be fine, as long as you don't put them on the bottom...;)

they have some of those boxes sitting out at best buy...

there was a book (loudspeaker cookbook?) that said that a port can be placed on any side of the enclosure... but multiple ports should be placed on the same plane
