    Best Position For Subs in a Truck

    I have a single 15" in a 5.5 cubic foot ported box tuned to 26 hz. The port and sub are on the same side as the box. How should i position the box so make it sound the best INSIDE the truck. With my previous POS flea market 10's, it didnt really sound good unless the windows were rolled down. Now that i got a ported box it should help.

    Anyways should have port/sub shoot up towards roof? toward seats? Facing back????? Downfire???
    Thanks...

    ps- what is meant by resonaut frequency of a car?

    subs should face foreward, port should fire up.

    If you Downfire those subs, depending on how much power, ur gonna find that rusted nuts and bolts will loosen up all around the cab. But it does sound awsome, dont hear as much distortion.
