Default Two braces in the middle

Hi, I am designing this enclosure box. Is it really important don't doing what I have done here? there are two walls in the bottom surface that hold and support two 4" abs pipes, so now those two pieces are blocking half of the way, the driver is placed at the top. I am also using two 90 degree elbows, which found worked really good in a previous build I did. I can find another way to hold them, but would it be worth it? is it like this configuration will sound crappy?

The displaced space about everything takes around 20 liters.

Please anyone? here I quickly draw it in 3D just to show the concept. Is it wrong having those two braces there? I can think in a way to make them less invasive, but will it be worth it? thanks.

Those braces will be fine in there. No adverse effect on sound.

Agreed. If I was building this though, I'd look at using a shelf vent instead. A lot less work involved.

Thanks everybody, and just look at how aerodynamic these 4" ABS pipe adapters look.

Curious about the build - what driver and box dimensions / tuning?

Although I like shelf ports they are not a lot less work if you build the box and the tuning is wrong...

There are lots of things that displaces space, for example each adapter takes 2.50 liter, I had to dipped it in water to measure it, all other volume measures I did it viewing entity info / properties on sketchup. Net box space is 88L, displaced space is 19.85L. Driver is Fosgate P3D4-12 600w rms, port tuning: 30Hz.
