    My 85 L cabinet is vented and I want to recess the driver. Can I double up the baffle thickness and mount the port on the outside without having to change the length of the port? Thanks.

    It should not be an issue. However, you will be taking away from the inside volume by "doubling" up on the bottom section of MDF. Plus, when you do this, you'll have to shorten the braces by 3/4" to accomodate the extra piece of wood. But, it's not a bad idea.

    Not if the extra piece of MDF is attached "outside" of the box. Making it 3/4" taller, rather than recessing it 3/4 into the box. He'd actually gain a small amount of volume this way since he's effectively pulling the port out of the box another 3/4", but I think it would be negligible.
