I am planning out my next set-up which will be an IDQ 10". Whats would be the difference in spl and sq between a forward firing and upfiring box in a reg. cab truck.

Now that is very interesting. I had never thought of facing subs to the rear deck....hmm may have to try that with the new rainbows I'm upgrading to. Any pics of that rear fire box?

I've tried foward, upward, back...and the port on the bottom firing towards the firewall. Firing towards the firewall was crazyyyyyyyyyy loud. Firing towards the back was 2nd....

Either back of the cab (long as you handle vib's etc) or firing downward for SQ.

What do you mean by firewall? The floor?
