    No you are fine, as you said the sub vents out the side, an inch is more than adequate clearance.

    Hardly at all...instead of displacing .128ft^3 it'd displace .1ft^3 adding .028 to your net volume...hardly a change in tuning...take those numbers with a grain of salt though.

    i agree, only reason for a ring in your case is if it was actually touching the port wall but one inch away you ain't got to worry, since it vents through the sides.
