yeah, the problem with that is the port would then need to be longer and the round ports are already as close to the back of the cab as possible, so...it would need a bend. not the end of the world, just another little complicating factor.
that is one big advantage of the bass cannon "top slot firing" design. there is no restriction on the port length. it can be nice and big and doesn't need any bends.
but something about that just doesn't look as intimidating. hard to put words on it, some designs just "have it" others don't. then again, it's not like it looks bad or anything....Edited by LTD02 - 11/9/13 at 12:13am
