    Hmm... I'm assuming you have the hatchback.
    ...
    1) I'd do Subs up, port forward
    - probably the most infamous style ( CRX Style ).

    Re: suggestions 4 88 civic

    Hmm, maybe tune lower ( CRXs usually are tuned higher... as of my knowledge - might be wrong )
    ... More port area ( bigger port.... different style port )
    Instead of L shape, slot, square... use a 6" - 8" circle .....
    ... just don't limit yourself, or get disappointed cause it didnt do what it did before.

    Just cause it hit a 151 in that car, don't mean it'll be the same in another. ( The bug could have peaked @ at 49 ... this car might peak @ 54...

    Re: suggestions 4 88 civic

    Well... make it like this!
    * My story *

    I had the Superbass ported probox for 12s facing the trunk - 139.6 ( Nissan Sentra )
    I turned the box around, facing the cabin - 140.7 ( Nissan Sentra )
    Bought the Superbass ported probox for L7s ( Modded it for circles - facing the trunk ) - 142.3
    I turned the box around, facing the cabin - 144.2
    * both were tuned @ ~50hz ... Same style box, just different size *
    ... Well, I finally built a box - Instead of the port right down the middle, port is on the side, subs facing the trunk. Tuned @ ~48.39 - 146.5

    Point - You just gotta play around.
    .... I put this setup in my honda ( 146.9 ). and then in my 4 runner ( 145.8 ) * And I thought it was gonna be louder in the SUV... sike

    Re: suggestions 4 88 civic

    IMO - Question 1: More port area....
    IMO - Question 2: You won't know until you do each one with each one....
    * subs forward - port up/forward/back/side
    * subs up - port up/forward/back/side
    * subs back - port up/forward/back side
    ** I've seen this ** subs side - port foward/back

    Draw each one up...
    ... See which one you like the most
    Post pictures, ask for comments on design
    ... Take whatever comments or advice ( only yours really counts )
    Then apply
