    Question about sub/port direction

    Not sure how well I stated the title

    My AQ now is forward firing, and the ports fire up.

    For the 2 18"s, I have enough depth to fire both subs up because I took the backseat out. Would I have an advantage to fire subs and port up if I am able to? The roof will have 2 layers of Damplifier pro

    Not sure the exact terms, but it seems to me that it will reflect the sound off of the roof (loading?).

    That would be somewhat difficult to do, I really just want to keep it between those 2 options. With the space I have, the box is going to have to be as wide as possible, therefore the port will really have no room.
