    Mounting Sub on top of box

    TO conserve money, i recently got 2 pieces of mdf and made the heights on all the pieces 11.5 inches, making the 13" total. The cut out diameter on the sub i'm getting(mag d2) is 11.125", it will be severely close, and i'm not sure if i wanna risk messing it up. However the depth, is more like 15 inches and i wondered if it would make any differeence at all to mount the sub on the top of the box? thanks

    Re: Mounting Sub on top of box

    I want to mount the sub on the top of the box, because the side of the box where i would normally would mount it may be too small, but i have plenty of room on top and i wanted to know if it would make a difference in sound quality. I can't see it making any difference. I cant explain it any better

    firing up is fine as long as you have clearance from the trunk lid

    Re: Mounting Sub on top of box

    I think it depends on the vehicle... as to which direction is the best to face the sub.



    Car: 1999 Plymouth Neon

    Head Unit: Alpine CDA-9853
    Components: RE RE comps in some custom kick panels.
    Subs: 1x Alpine Type R 1242D In a vented 33 hz 3cuft box. (redesiging)
    Sub Amp: 1x Alpine MRD-M301 mono amp (400 rms/14.4volts @ 2ohms)
    Speaker Amp: Infinity 7520a (97 rms x2 /14.4volts @ 4 ohms)
