    Hatchback enclosure help

    I have a 2008 Hyundai Accent. It's a really small 2 door hatchback lol. When I build the enclosure for it, should I build the port firing up and sub forward or vise versa? Or perhaps something other than that?

    Eh, unless you're competing it won't matter much. Just make sure you have enough clearance between the hatch and either the port or subwoofer. If it was me, I would fire the sub up and port to the rear.

    i know you are wanting to do your own thing, but i have a box loaded with a single 12, and an amp and i want to get rid of it.

    it was doing 135's on music with onle a couple hundred watts on it.

    and im willing to let it go for cheap.

    it came out of the trunk of an 03 hyundai accent.

    About 4cf net max. If I make a wedge box that conforms to the back seats, possibly another cubic foot or two.
