    Standard cab ranger port help!!!

    Ok guys here's the deal...... I've built two boxes so far this summer and have had problems with both of them. I need to know the best spot to put the port in a regular cab truck, preferably a Ford Ranger.

    First Box:

    This one got pretty loud but there was a ton of port noise. It is 1.1@33hz with a 3'' aeroport. The reason I ditched it was the port noise and I didn't like how it fit behind the seats....too deep at the top.

    New box:

    1.1@33 again with a 3'' aeroport. Now it fires into the corner about 4'' away from the side panel. The output dropped rediculously and also the bass is just so flat sounding....it sounds horrible.

    What should I do? I'd appreciate help from all you standard cab truck owners.

    I forgot to mention the first box is an up-firing port

    I lowered the "Q" setting on the amp, lowered the "center frequency", and also lowered the ssf (I can't remember what JL calls it) and it got noticeably louder throughout the 30-50hz or so range. I'll have to mess around with it more when I get home from work. I liked port up if it wasn't for the port noise.

    I was looking at this earlier.....that's some clean work. I'm tearing my interior up this weekend and will be making some changes.

    Edit: Port area looks really small
