I am building 2 separate boxes with aero ports. each will sit across from each other along the sides of a small hatch (3k gt). if i put the ports on the side of the boxes facing each other and firing into the center will i encounter problems such as cancellation or anything else? there will be about 16 inches in between the 2 and the subs will be facing up.

most likely not. you would preferably want to have them be able to load off of something but go ahead and place them where you can fit them.

Id say yes... I know something as little as the AC vents blowing towards (against) a port it will affect a TL score so firing one into another would probably do the same...

Hahaha ya sorry man I just think it will have some affects on output since it would be like having equal forces firing at each other...

What kind of car??

mitsubishi 3000gt and its 2 type r 12s. boxes will be smaller than i'd like, 1.4 cft each before port and i'm not in a position to buy different subs at this point. aero's are 3 inch as 4inchers would be too long for the box.

why not just build one box and load off the side?

if you can, I'd face the subs together, iirc that actually serves to make the system louder, unfortunately, that isn't the case with ports.

I don't have the space to do that, the spare hump is in the middle of the hatch:-(

that's a thought. anyone know if it definitely will work?

Side port that car.

which side do you mean? have the ports firing at each other or into the outter side plastic molding? If the latter, it will be pretty close to the sides, maybe ~3 -4 inches away. is this ok?

I say test it...no one can give you an answer really unless they've tried it
16" is a good distance

1.4 is too small of airpsace and 3in ports will have a ton of port noise. Just go with a high powered 12 and call it a day.
