    sub position?? which way to face

    i need help determining which way to face the sub... 15" L7 ..here's a crude picture of what i'm talking about.. in #1 the sub is really really close to the port... like about an inch away... ... #2 the sub would be about 2" away from the seat with the port firing up...

    which way is going to be better?



    depending on which way i go box is going to be about 5 cubes.. and about 61.5 sq" of port... is this too much for an L7?.... thanks..

    it's in the backsheet (well..where the backseat is.. it's lifted up) of my dodge pickup.. behind the driver seat

    <---front of pickup does that help any?

    maybe a little more from you. i can help you with the positioning but i dont have enough experience with the L7's ported to help you with the volume and port area.

    I have found that downfiring both the port and the sub yielded the best sound in a truck

    out of those two drawings, I would do #1. but a downfiring box would be sweet if you can make room for it.
