I am reorganizing my room and was thinking to add a small 2 tire bookshelf and place the subwoofer in the bottom tire? its a small 100W - 150W down firing 12" cubic sub with a port on its side and feet on the bottom. now if I were to place it inside the bookshelf then the bookshelf walls may offer an inch or two of clearance for the port, or I could turn the subwoofer around making the front side facing its right side and the port facing forward of the bookshelf.
So not sure which way to go. I know the later way would offer all the clearance but at the expense of looking ugly and messy since the wiring will come showing on one side.. I dont know, maybe I could do some modifications to the bookshelf to you know add a half panel and hide the wiring, but I dont know. How much clearance does the port need anyway?
