A port isn't jsut a hole in a box...you have to have a depth component to it, so if you mean it's just a hole, then no it will not work. What do you want your box tuned at? Stick around before you damage your sub and learn a few things. People here are glad to help you out.

That box isnt gonna be 2.65 cubes after you throw a sub in (-.1 to -.25 depending on sub) and after the port (- quite a bit of space depending on tuning) youll end up closer to 2 cubes or less.

well how should i put the port in? and its for one twelve, and i know nothin about tuning it in? i could make it 2 inches wider maybe then, im in the process of making it, is it worth doing that? it reccomends 2.3 for everday bass and 3.1 for spl comp,
