    need box help for PT Cruiser

    Don't laugh, it's my wife's car. Anyway, I've got a 12" Boston G5 and the passive radiator to go with it. I plan to build a 1 cubic foot sealed box per the recommendations by Boston. I'm considering inverting the sub straight up and putting the pr toward the back. Would this combination be good or would something else sound better?

    Why invert it? I think it looks silly. I would just try sub up regular, PR facing back. But however you do it, it wouldn't be too hard to experiment with different configs since it is just 1 cf. Start with sub up PR back and then try out other combos till it sounds best.

    I've never inverted one and was just thinking about trying it. I may or may not do it. Thanks for the reply.

    with pt cruiser, it all depends on the back seats.

    with the back seats in, do the setup on the driver side of the cargo area. face the sub upward and the port / radiator to the passenger side for listening to music.


    if you were to have the rear seats out, then pt cruiser responds better with the enclosure against the back of the front seats, with the sub up and the port / radiator to the rear.

    i have spent countless hours in my pt cruiser with termlab and rta, if someone had told me this 2 years ago, i would have saved myself alot of trouble.

    Thanks for the info man. I built the box for sub up and pr back and it's just a square box so I can just turn it sideways and try it either way. Do you have any pics of your PT Cruiser set-up?

    That's a LOT more of a system than I'm going to have in mine. Very nice. I tried to see but couldn't, did you put components in the doors? I'm trying to decide on the best place to mount the tweeters because the stock location *****. Nice job on the Cruiser.
