    If two ports are on different sides of the box and are of different size, will the ports interact with each other (the vibration of air in one port working with the woofer to cause more vibration of air in the second, larger port)?

    Or, is it possible that a box may be designed this way?

    This is assuming that the ports have different dimensions to achieve the same tuning frequency.

    You'll get tuning at different frequencies which will more than likely muck up the extended bass shelf idea for using ports/PRs.

    It's not a good idea, but if you are experimental in nature, have at it, and report back your results.

    I mean that it's like using two ports that are different sizes but the port with the most air movement starts forcing extra air in and out of another port
