    You dont HAVE to keep it away from them. Its better to do so though. Port noise and reduced performance can result from it.

    Now to answer your question...a good 4-5" would be good and a little more would be ideal IMO.

    Re: port distance

    ya i was just wondering because i have a litte hatch in my rear seats that folds down into the trunk. and was thinking i could leave that down most of the time and have it fire through there directly into the cabin, but i didnt know if i could cause when i fold it back up i only have like 1"-2". would that also reduce vibration/pressure in the trunk, if i had the port emptying into the cabin?

    Re: port distance

    same as building the box, no closer then the port is wide (or it's diameter). the same rule applies outside of the box as it does inside.
