    Ports for my box...

    I was reading MTX's site on building boxes, and i was wondering....
    (http://www.mtxaudio.com/caraudio/edu...nstruction.cfm)

    they state in there reading that it would be better to have ports running to the listening area (aka not the trunk) If i put ports for my box on top, and run them up outside the box to my rear deck, and make some holes comprable to the size of the pvc i would use for ports, would that give me a better listening experience?

    basically your trappin all the air in the trunk... w/ the port holes through the top lid or wherever, youll be allowing more air to flow through the cab of the car...makin it louder, on the inside of the cab

    yes, some people have done that, port through the rear deck, lets more of the sound into the cabin
