    which way is best?

    hi. i have a ford probe 2nd generation, and its a hatchback. putting 4 subs in it this week. hopefully ill have some pics to show you guys.

    however, which should i do:

    1. face ALL 4 subs up ?

    2. face 2 towards the back of the car and 2 towards the front?

    3. face 2 towards the back and 2 straight up?

    i think #1 is the best BUT i love how subs play in my car facing th erear, so i was thinking about #3

    any thoughts?

    Re: which way is best?

    This is too subjective of a question to be able to really give you a definitive answer unless someone with a Probe with experience with 4 subs and a variety of boxes can chime in to let us know what proved to work best in their experience.

    Add to that the fact that what someone else likes best may not match what works best for you and you end up with a problem whose only solution is for you to try a couple of different ways out and see which sounds best to your ear. It is, after all, your car and your gear.

    I don't usually mess with probes, but.

    I'd go 2 up and 2 back and keep the box as far to the back as possible

    when u say you dont mess with probes, does that mean they are a difficult car in regards to building a system in?

    also,

    i thought 2 up and 2 back had cancelling issues?

    No, it's when you have 2 up and 2 front Most people spread a lot of rumors about cancelation, and they don't have any clue as to what they're really talking about.

    And no, they're not a hard vehicle to work around.I just don't like the probes lol.
