    Bad to port to the side???

    I can't fit 2 15's and 2 6" ports on the front baffle board which is facing into the cabin so....

    Either go sealed, which I don't like or...

    (1) 6" port going out the left side and one going out the right or....

    both 6" ports going out same side.

    BTW facing subs towards the trunk blocks it off from the cabin. and not enough room to put ports facing up.

    Does it affect anything if the ports are going out to the side??

    Re: Bad to port to the side???

    I'm doing 2 15" IXL in the trunk of my civic. It will be an in-trunk build taking up my whole trunk. the subs are sharing about 5.7 cu ft. after port and sub displacement. Should be loud.

    Re: Bad to port to the side???

    ive done it a few times, no real problems, i always go by the rule to make sure the ports are the same distance from the subs if there are multiple and on different sides

    kinda like this

    ---p-------
    [ (s)
    [ (s)
    ---p-------

    and not this

    --p--------
    [ (s)
    [ (s)
    -------p---

    i dont know if it really matters all that much, ive seen some done the other way and they didnt seem to live up to there potential (could have been builder error)

    It's much cheaper to use PVC piping from your local hardware store

    People on this forum have had good results side-firing ports in their trunks here. I say go for it.

    Re: Bad to port to the side???

    i fire mine to the side in scion tc, it's sweet.

    I tried a LOT of other designs in this hatchback and only 3 excelled in hitting the highest SPL numbers from 31-55hz.

    Those 3 designs were
    sub up, port back
    Sub back, port back
    Sub forward, port to passenger side.

    I chose sub forward, port to passenger side.

    Difference?
    Sub back port back had the highest averaging spl level for the frequency range but it's gonna cause more rattle then any other design.
    Sub up port back sustained the highest peaking SPL level but it was harder to fit equipment in there because i couldnt block the ports...

    Sub forward, port to passenger side- This was choice of install for this car! It had the best sounding design WITH the highest averaging spl level. In terms of Peak spl level, it was only 0.4 db down from sub up port back.... But i made up for that loss because i was able to add an extra 2,500w of power in the car with extra batts compared to the sub up port back design so actually, sub forward, port to passenger side is louder... i can fit more equipment in there and is only 0.4 db lower than sub up port back,
