    Actually, just thrown in the back seat, you'd probably lose vs. the trunk.

    Dont think there's an exact way to tell, but I know im loosing alot. I get 135 at the dash, but 148 at the port. So I'm sure if i had seats that folded down it would help alot.

    i wouldnt do it (i.e. put the box on the back seat). i did that one time, and it sounded like ****. maybe i did something wrong, maybe not.

    Can always cut the back dash and mount the subs on the dash and a port firing out the dash, than build the box under it. Thats what im planning.
