The port comes into play below 80hz at higher volume. If crossed over at 80-90hz you should be fine with 3-4" clearance. In ideal conditions, you want to give them as much space as possible, but like most of us you do what you can with the space and uncontrollable restrictions. Give them as much space as you can get away with. sound quality should be fine as long as they're not stuffed in a corner.
