View Full Version : Noob seeking advice

Well basically I've been into car audio for about a year and a half. Right now I'm running 2 Type-r 12's, dual 2 ohms, in a 3.6 cu ft. ported box. My ride is an 01 civic.

Right now i have the box facing the rear and I fold my back seats down to get more airspace for the subs as well as more sound, but I am curious as to whether turning the box to face the driver and folding down my back seats will help the sound or hurt it. Any advice would be helpful :D

Just try it out, man.

Sometimes its better just to try something out rather than asking people what they think will be best. Especially if its something simple like turning your box around. It definitely wont hurt anything, so give it a try! If you turn it around and like the sound more, keep it, if you don't turn the box how you had it to begin with.

Your box seems pretty small, are you lacking in the low frequencies any?

well the box is about as big as i can get it without it engulfing my entire trunk right now. but considering that the box isn't as big as i would like, it does get the lows pretty well. but it could definitely hit them a lot stronger if i had a bigger box.
