You can melt them with a bowl but pvc is generally used for cylindrical ports regardless if they are going to have flares on them or not.

Flaring acoustically lowers port velocity while maintaining the same ID port area through the port tube.

I do not know the exact ratio but i do know a proper flared port is one where the inner port is about 2-2.5x larger than the outer one.

flaring makes a diffrence on the inside of the box...the flare on the inside of the box smooths air flow and prevents chuffing sounds
