    I didn't think it mattered? I've seen it done in all sorts of ways.

    thanks for clearing up that it doesnt matter wich way the port faces, , but the same question still remains, wich one of the 2 will be better.

    If it doesn't matter which way the port faces, then either box will do...won't it. I mean the only difference is which way the port faces. Just make sure you hava enough room in front of the port. It should be no closer than it's diameter. (If you have a 4" diameter port then you box/port should have 4" of room in front of it. If you have a slot port use it's width.)

    i ment it doesnt matter if the port faces the same way as the sub or not.

    Whichever of those that give the least obstruction around the port would probably be best.
