    slanted box

    just bought a slanted box hoping it would fit in my trunk but the only way i could get it to fit was with the longer end on top and shorter end on bottom, making the subs slanted down a bit. is that a bad idea or will it not make a difference?

    well if it's slanted and you wanna put it upside down, depending on how slanted it is and how heavy the sub is it might fall down lol.

    Re: slanted box

    I had to do that to a sealed box for 2 15's in my trunk a long time ago when i bought a prefab box. The weight of the subs is going to knock the over unless you hold it up somehow.

    yeh thts what i was worried about but if it does fall the top is going to hit my trunk before the subs will but yeh im hopefully going to find a way to hold it up. will it affect the sound at all, also would it be better to face them in or out with that?

    IDK. I've never tried it before. Try it out, if it doesn't work get a smaller box?
