you'll just have to test and find out.



its tough to say in my Cherokee...i think ports up are louder though.

Only real way to tell you is to get yourself a mic and try it out for yourself...

But either way, both enclosures will be the same, just sitting on different planes. So build one, and try both ways... See which is audibly louder, and use it ;)

if you give the box a similar height and depth i dont see why you couldnt flip it and see which sounds better.

well when i did my testing i tested it drive by spl style for meca....and with sub rear/port up i lost .7 db's Vs. sub up/port back. not really an audible difference...but a good sized difference on the meter.
