    well no not really. it depends on the volume of the box, then the port size thing kinda has a ratio not really though. i wound't recommend a 1 inch port. too much noise

    No specific ratio to follow.

    You probably don't want to go any slimmer
    than 1:8. This is to reduce port noise.

    Example: if the port is 16" tall it should be at
    least 2" wide.

    Most likely you will be fine.

    If you are using long excursion(Xmax) subs with
    huge amounts of power your chance of having
    port noise increases. The more air you move the
    larger your port area should be. And if it's too small
    you won't like the sound you'll hear.

    If you can go larger, go larger. Ex: 17 x 3

    But 17 x 2 should be okay.

    it doesn't matter how it bent just as long as it is the right size?

    You are correct sir!
    As long as the port is the proper length and width and height
    it can snake around inside the box. No problem.

    Air will find it's way through the maze!

    BTW You're welcome man.
