Just trying to brainstorm ideas.
While it is certainly possible to utilize down firing drivers, keep in mind this adds a bit of a low pass filtering to the device, though most pro drivers have a rising response which will mitigate this issue compared to low efficiency home drivers.
Ports would be fine down facing, this will also discourage rodents / animals from entering the enclosure without your express consent. Screen applied over the inner port ends will also be a good deterrent.
