Default Port location

What is your preference in placing the port? Should it be closer to the floor or is it a matter of its location with respect to the driver?

For example, with an ML TL, I'd have it on the front panel, perhaps 3 inches up. Couples nicely to the floor, and supresses ripple. Another alternative: base mounted. Raise the speaker on spaces and let the floor-mounted port drive the room's vertical reonant mode which is cleaner and faster as a rule than the horizontal modes.
