I just built a box for my 02 Mustang GT and the vibrations are there but the sound isnt. I am thinking the subs may sound better facing towards the trunk? I have never done a box for a coupe, only hatchbacks, so sound direction has never been a problem. Will the bass sound better if I face it backwards, or is there a bandpass type box or better I am missing?
Thanks for any suggestions!
Edited to add: Alright, I tried the wiring suggestions, and it made no difference. But, what I did figure out is that the bass DOUBLED when I opened the trunk. Thus, I assume the problem is the bass cancellation I read about in another thread.
So, do I turn the box around, or do I do I remove the Mach 460 rack from under the rear deck leaving only a rear deck frame, add baffles and trim pieces for the 5X7's and fire the woofers straight up into the back window. Either would be relatively easy, but the straight up version would allow me to use my current flush mount set-up in the trunk. I can just remove the front piece of the box and replace with a solid piece and then cut new holes in the top of the box.
What do you guys think?
Edit #2 i turned the box around to face the back of the trunk and it SLAMS. Love it. Need to build a new box now though so it looks better. This will do for a few weeks. Thanks for all your help!
Heres the current set-up.
Yes I know the subs are underpowered. LOL
