    Port to the front or back?

    I'll finally be starting on my box next week. The box will be a center council going from the dash to the back seat with 4 12" RL-p's fireing up. My question is should I put the port fireing forward towards the dash? Or have it fireing back under the seat towards the back wall behind the rear seat? By the way this is going in an '05 chevy crew cab fullsize.

    You need to be more specific. City council or center console?

    That's what I was thinking. it would be about a foot away from the wall. Where if I did it to the front (dash) it would be about 6"-8".
