Downfiring works awesome in trucks just make sure you leave yourself enough room from the speakers to your floor. I had 2x 12" audiopulse revos downfiring and the sq was amazing. Give it a shot for sure it sounds much better than subs up port up..

ok awesome..how many inches do you suggest to be safe? i have an izusu i-280 ext. cab so i was gonna just clean out the area behind my seat and downfire it.

Leave at least 2-3" from where the woofer sits static and the floor.
