I'm building a box with a 6in aero, what's the closest the open end should be from the back of my box. Is 2.5 inches too close? Can it go closer without any problems or should i keep it farther away?

A good rule of thumb is that the port should be atleast the same distance away from the side of the box as the diameter.

6" port should have atleast 6" of space between the flare and wall.

That's def more than i can fit. The directions that came with my precision port said it can be placed as close as 1in away from any inside wall, so I just went with a little over 2 inches. Hopefully it sounds alright.

That's the rule with normal slot ports since there's only one side for the air to move in and out of(if using the outside wall(s) of the box for the port as well), whereas with an aero you can have air enter and exit the port from all around, allowing it to be closer to a wall without choking the port.
