Should make the cutout facing up or same way as the port?

You always want to keep the sub on the same face as the port whenever possible

Wrong.

Up or same side will be fine with that box/vehicle. What ever looks better to you...

Not wrong, The reason you want the sub to be on the same side as the port is so that both the sub and the port are playing to the same surface and are at approximatly the same distance from the listener. This creates less chance of cancelation.

Im more than willing to listen to why im wrong, Im going off what I have been told in the past and from past experiences. With that said, replying with No or Nope or Wrong is completly usless to me and the original poster, be productive or dont bother.

I DONT want to fight, i just want to know why Im wrong. As I said in the past, if Im wrong and someone shows me why, Im not only OK with that, I appreciative that someone taught me something new. I just hate the BS 1 or 2 word replys that dont tell me or anyone else anything tangible. So far from where Im sitting Im the only one that actually gave a reason for my response. Apperently my reasoning is wrong but so far its the only one to go off of. So as I said before, Prove Me Wrong

It dont matter which way you put the sub, a box is a box built to specifications for the sub...

I am leaning towards the port because it lokks cleaner and then iu can make an amp rack on top.

OK thats true its built to spec, but obviously positioning of a woofer matters in a vehicle. If it didnt than turning a box around to face the back of the vehicle as opposed to the front wouldnt cause any change in sound but it does. So on that same train of thought, the port should also be governed under those same laws correct? And if it is wouldnt it be best to have the woofer and the port on the same side of the box so they are subjected to the same conditions? Or am I way off base here.

Okay, I got a question for all the experienced ported box builders. Let's say two alpine type r's ported under the back seat (lifted 4.5") of a 99 dodge ram 1500. The subs are down firing, can the port be placed in the center seperate chamber facing the center console. In other words sub not on port side. How would this effect the performance

See in your case its the lesser of two evils. A port to close to another surface will cause the tunning frequency to change, so putting the ports down firing like a inch or 2 off the floor would probally be a bad thing, so I would be doing what you are talking about.

didn't mean to, sorry colt just was arguing w/ a friend today about the box design i suggested this, while he insisted the port had to be the same side as the sub seemed all to similiar, thanks

well i own a explorer and had the best luck so far firing off the hatch , that being said the sub placement boils down to what looks better to you amp on top of the box or next to the port or not even in view. Whatever looks copesetic (i know spelled that wrong) to you

This seems to be the way I'm leaning towards doing it.....and then some kinda amp rack type deal on top.....any suggestions on that?
