    Room in front of speakers

    I have a 2002 S-10 extended cab and 2 12" MTX. I was wondering how much room you need infront of speakers. They will be in a sealed box. I would like to face them toward the front, but if I need alot of room I will have to point them up. Any suggestions or input would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I ahve learned in trucks that facing them backwards or firing right into the sidewalls works the best , They hit the hardest that way , My 2 Pennies !

    Ive tried subs facing to the front in an ext. cab and was not happy.I currntly have 4 12" subs in a s-10 extreme ext.cab facing up and angled toward the rear glass, sounds awsome.

    I think I am going to design it with the 12s facing up and toward the side. What do you think?
