Changing the port location on a cab.
Long story short, is there any reason why I should not place a flared port on the side of a cab, rather than the front or back? Room for the port defines this question.

My eight incher is side ported for this reason. Having the port parallel to the longest dimension of the cab allows you to maximize its area.

Since you are actually "tuning " the cabinet, you may place the port wherever it fits. Just try to avoid blocking the interior opening of the port. I prefer flared ports. check out Parts Express.

Side is just fine. Just don't set it right against the wall or another amp when you setup so as to not block the port opening.

Side mounted port
I am using a 3 " Precision Port in an Ampeg 108, with a 10 Emenince speaker upgrade, which is a tight fit. People have mounted the port in the rear, but it looks like a tight fit, to me, and it's flare would be right near the rear of the speaker. There has been a lengthy thread on this upgrade, and they have put the port in the rear, but I am thinking about using a side location to get more room from the port tube to internal walls. Thanks for all your expertise.
