    Now that is very interesting. I had never thought of facing subs to the rear deck....hmm may have to try that with the new rainbows I'm upgrading to. Any pics of that rear fire box?

    I've tried foward, upward, back...and the port on the bottom firing towards the firewall. Firing towards the firewall was crazyyyyyyyyyy loud. Firing towards the back was 2nd....

    Either back of the cab (long as you handle vib's etc) or firing downward for SQ.
