    Re: subwoofer direction

    Well IIRC it takes ~18 feet for a sub's wave to reach its peak.. and facing it backward forces it to travel a longer distance... Thats all IIRC.

    Re: subwoofer direction

    to my knowledge there is non/very little cons with facing subs rearward...the problem is facing subs forward or towards the cabin that requires a bit more work but its still possible to yield great results firing forward also..

    Re: subwoofer direction

    you will get a ton of rattle out of your trunk, thats why in most cars no one faces them up

    Re: subwoofer direction

    search for "subwoofer firing direction" or something to that nature. Alot of your questions have been covered already
