is it better for the subs to be facing up, and ports firing at the hatch? or would a wall get louder? (18" solo x or MT, not sure)

i know a guy that had 2 12" sx's in a 4 dr explorer, with like 2500w, and he beat another guy with 4 15's in a wall in the same kinda explorer, with about 4000w...is it just cuase the wall wasent built for spl? (the sx box was)

Well, a wall is a wall because they want to get loud... Putting in a wall for SQ would be pretty silly.

Many people who cannot build a wall do up facing subs with rear firing ports... Thats an option.

and if you build a wall you can't see out your rear window... do a plexiglass IB install... then you'll get the best of both worlds...

IF DONE PROPERLY... A walled enclosure will be the loudest. It creates a smaller space for the bass to fill, all the loudest vehicles in the world have them.

IB (infinite baffle) isn't the loudest install, it's an SQ install... basically you seperate the rear sound waves from the front ie (in an SUV) install a sealed complete wall between the passenger and the cargo areas, using the entire cargo area as a huge sealed box... you have to have the right subwoofers for it though... IB will get REALLY low too... usually it's done in regular cars, in fact I've never heard of it in an SUV... I have subs that would enjoy IB but since I have an SUV I built a rather large 8cu ft sealed box...
