The set up in my current project means that a port like this would make things much easier to build - im just going for a silly loud boomer not chasing numbers

Thanks

Thats some nice wood working on the port mouth, that'd look sweet fibreglassed over and painted up in a show car !

I digress. Back in the earlier days of dB Drag (2000-'02) a lot of the big guys used a wall design just like that, and for the same reasons you're looking at doing it.. sometimes its easier to fit that design in with what you have and what its going into.
It'll work just fine and lets face it, any wall is gunna be impressive and loud :D

is there any benefit from doing a different style wall? i've also seen port on the sides, or port in the middle.

There's debate about it but in the end, a strongly braced wall with good port tuning is more important than where the ports located. So it how much power you're feeding out. Port on the bottom is just a normal wall laying down :P.

Some people even prefer this look, hiding the port for a stealthier install.. or to psyche out their competition at events who'll think they run sealed ;).
