    Best port placement for crew cab truck??

    OK I built a really nice console box for the back seat of my crew cab at 4.33CF and tuned it to 40Hz and am running 3, 4" aeros port up right now and sub up at an angle toward the front and I am running 3500 watts (measured with the DMM) to it RMS. I want to know how to make it louder in this vehicle as it seems like it should be louder, I only have a cheap Radio shack DB meter but it only reads 124db??? What the Fu@#! I don't get it, this thing should be bangin for that kind of power and sub?? Any Ideas?? Should I get another 4" port? what do I do?

    Thanks!

    Fire the ports to the side or backwards.

    Re: Best port placement for crew cab truck??

    That will help huh? I was thinking of doing that, I figure I could cap the top off and put them in the sides, you think the 40Hz is good for the AQ? I was trying to make it loud and then let it go below the tuning for the lows when I want to play music.. What is better, the back or side for the crew cab?

    Eh, probably side unless you have the back seat taken out. And if you like lows I would tune more around 36hz.

    Re: Best port placement for crew cab truck??

    The seat is out but I am planning on putting bucket seats in the back later. What about a baffle over the ports to help port loading and then kerf it toward the back window?? I have seen "loading boxes" before, could this work? It would be easy to do just to try I guess..

    If you did that, just kind of mess around with it. I'm in the process of testing with a bunch of different setups with the direction the port and sub fire.

    Everything is now underneath platform so now I can do almost anything. I have about 60x(20-26) inches of surface area to work with.

The fuse door comes off, I broke a windshield wiper and It poped off the tilt lever formy steering wheel.

    so the port to the sides should be best? I will have to build a new box for that to work so I only want to do it if it will really help!
