thought you get that hollow sound when you have too much space...

yep, I'd try that, midbass doesnt do well in small sealed kicks, it often ends up sounding hollow.

in the back so it vents into the floor, or in the side of the back so it vents into the car?

what about wiring one in reverse of the other, or is it a different hollow sound?
that worked for me

into the floor.
would it be better to do this ^(floor)

or to port it @ a certain Hz.
and if ported what should i tune to? 100Hz, 80Hz, .....?

port a midbass driver? never heard of that.... I would just recommend drilling a hole in the back so that the rear wave hits the carpet.

*ps* I like ur new sig jellyfish :yumyum:
