View Full Version : Mounting Sub on top of box

11-20-2005, 06:14 PM
TO conserve money, i recently got 2 pieces of mdf and made the heights on all the pieces 11.5 inches, making the 13" total. The cut out diameter on the sub i'm getting(mag d2) is 11.125", it will be severely close, and i'm not sure if i wanna risk messing it up. However the depth, is more like 15 inches and i wondered if it would make any differeence at all to mount the sub on the top of the box? thanks

I want to mount the sub on the top of the box, because the side of the box where i would normally would mount it may be too small, but i have plenty of room on top and i wanted to know if it would make a difference in sound quality. I can't see it making any difference. I cant explain it any better

yeah, mount it on the top, that'll give you a better sound anywat..
you mean firing upwards right?

firing up is fine as long as you have clearance from the trunk lid

yeah, thats what i mean, i think i should have enough room there.

I think it depends on the vehicle... as to which direction is the best to face the sub.
