    testing box?

    i am going to build a box for testing to figure out what i want to tune to, its going to be 4 cubes for two 187 series 12's and i have some 4" pvc laying around and i am going to use it for the ports,

    i will probably use two ports what will be the best layout for the subs and ports? subs up on one side of the box with ports up on other side? ports between the two subs? subs middle ports on the outside of subs?

    or go with one port out each side? or both ports out on side?

    Re: testing box?

    In my ford ranger. sub up port up worked great. In my chevy crewcab, i have sub up on pass side, port to side firing into driver side back door. Seems to work really well, i have fliped the box every which way and this way sounds the best and meters the best.
