    Icon14 Downfiring Sub - Good or Bad idea?

    I was planing on making a downfiring box for my audiobahn 12" sub. What are the pros and cons of this design?

    The con that I know of is that the sub doesn't seem to be as loud. The pros are that it takes away from the directional sound away (it is harder to tell where the bass is coming from) 2 It works like corner loading and can sound lower than it is actually playing. 3 It adds more feel bass...shakes the car more.

    I'm currently downfiring 2 10's with only 250RMS total in a bandpass box. Semms to be perfectly fine to me...you sure fell a lot more bass, and its still pretty dam loud.
