Because with a common chamber you will only need one port...

With 2 separate chambers, you will need an identical port on each side...

i have to do two ports in each chamber anyway, because at 1.27 cu ft per sub, with 1.5 inch pvc, it takes two 6 inch pipes per chamber to equal 32.5hz
so i'd have to do 4 ports any way you look at it

so do just a 2.5 cu ft box with a common chamber and 4 ports?

edit
altogether (with particle board doubled up) it would be 15.5 high, 15.5 deep and roughly 40 or so inches wide because i'm not sure how much the slot will take in width. i want the internal volume to be roughly 2.5 cu ft. tuned around 34 hz or so
think you could gimmie some better/more accurate dimensions?

Why are you stuck with particle board? If you haven't cut it you can return it. If that particular store doesn't have mdf then go somewhere else. You will save yourself a lot of work and you will be much happier.

It isn't dense enough. Your box will sound hollow. I'd wait for mdf.
