    How should subs be mounted to a box?

    Hey I was wondering if it matters the way subs are mounted on the box. For example:
    X represents subs
    and L represents the port

    should it be mounted like this:

    X .....X..............L

    or

    X...............L................X?

    X L X would be optimal...although I've done it both ways and had no problems.

    Doesn't matter, acoustically.

    Having a single port system and a common chamber simplifies building because you don't need to build/tune two seperate port systems, but that's the only difference.
