    Pointing sub towards floor?

    I am using a sealed box and to keep the height down on my 12" I need to spread it out. I am either going to have to point it up or down. Which way should I mount?

    If I mount it sub-down, I as going to use an "H" design (think of the sub suspended on legs.. bottom part of the "H"). This will live the sides open for air and give the sub an inch or two between it and the floor.

    Thanks guys,
    Hawk

    its called downfiring. And i dont really understand your question. If you downfire them, the shoot into the floor, but if you mount them up they go into the seat. So no real difference.

    I'd fire it down. Only because I was tempted to do this myself. I decided to go inverted though.
