what is the difference between a square vent where you just cut out a part of a side vs a pipe sort of port?

They are one of two box designs, either they are both ported and the one with the square hole is using an internal "tunnel" as it's port, or it's a bass reflex box which is a whole different story.

Both box types take specific planning and design to work with the specific sub(s) you put in them, so don't think if you cut a hole in your box you'll have a ported enclosure. Not that you're planning on doing that, but I've seen it happen. :)

Here's a good article (http://www.termpro.com/articles/buildbox.html) to read, it will give you a good foundation on enclosure types.

God bless!
