greetings.

 

the porting tunes the box to the speaker.

 

i don't entirely understand it, but its about not limiting the speakers extrusion by not compressing the air inside the box (it the air has somewhere to go).

 

the port has a massive effect on the sound that is produced, specifically bass, but the port must be specific to the speaker in order for it to work properly, and if the port is wrong you might do more harm than good.

 

there are plenty of theories around as to what works the best and how you calculate it....but it is specifict to the speaker itself, the enclosure size etc....

 

here is one from a quick google:
