    You shouldnt just "port" a sealed enclosure, have a new one made or make one yourself. And what do you mean its firing towards the back doors? Where is this mounted and what vehicle?

    I may know a thing or two about those What year?

    I've had my best results with the speakers firing back, like you said...about a foot and a half from the doors.

    A ported box will be night and day from what you have now. I would reccomend it...

    The output will be far greater, and if done correctly, you can maintain good SQ as well.
