start out
port rear
port side

if you dont like it keep moving it around
try a couple boxes if you got the $ to build a few

the box i built is perfect. 2.6cubes after port/woofer displacement tuned to 40hz with DD's port design. I'm just wandering which config will give me better numbers with TL.

even with 2 3510s you would still put up some really good #s

to bad i dont got the z1a's still or i could help you out there
