Would this layout cause dead space since the sub is facing the port opening?

Should be fine, but I would switch the ports to aeros if you are chasing after big #s. Slots are terribly inefficient compared to a round port. Look at how many people are running slots at competitions- maybe 10% or less.

all of the loudest cars in the world run slot ports

Examples?

A ton of people by me are running aeros. I know the guy with the MECA S5 world record and he swears by aeros and gave me over a half hour lesson on them and went on another hour talking about spl in general and what works and what doesnt. He runs a shop by my parents house, I spent a couple hours there one day around thanksgiving. As air flows through the port, the round shape makes it begin to spin, thus accelerating- like water going down a drain. Its simple fluid dynamics.

definetly l-ports aren't the most efficient

Basically anything doing over a 165.

This design is for a 12,so trying to fit 2 4" or 1 6" might be a pita.

Well aeros work very well up to a certain point then you get into walls and crazy large enclosures that take up the whole vehicle. They just arent practical when you need hundreds of sq in of port opening.

They make 45 and 90 degree bends for the tubes (abs plastic aeroports or pvc pipe)

No reason not to use a slot port and flare the openings, should be about the same effect. I like round ports myself, but I've certainly seen/heard/built some impressive slots.
