I am hoping for some insight. I am getting close to picking out my sub stage but have a few questions about enclosure size, placement, and firing direction of the subs. I have a 99 Mustang and know they are not the best for subs due to trunk space and other factors. However, before I decide on what subs I want to purchase, I need a few things cleared up for me. I appreciate your input.
When it comes to the enclosure, I would like to build my own. Since I listen mainly to classic rock and alternative I believe a sealed enclosure is the way to go. For enclosure placement, I know most of the time it is more beneficial to have the subs facing the trunk and pushed towards the rear as far as possible to maximize the acoustics...or so i have read. However, as many know, the back seats of the mustang fold down to expose the trunk. Would it be beneficial to remove the seat backs and have the subs pointing into the cabin (like a 1/2 wall if you will) or would it not sound as good?
As for enclosure size, I would like to have access to my spare tire and so, if needed, be able to slide the box into the cabin for easy access into the trunk. Is this something that is doable, or would it kill the sound due to the height restriction of the box?
Thank you all for the insight and advice.
