    Facing front or rear of car?

    got a '95 mitsubishi eclipse. Its a hatchback. Should I face my 15" Rockford sub toward the front of the car...or toward the rear for best sound?

    Try it both ways and choose the one you like best. But I would face it toward the rear. That sounds better in a hatch to me

    Mostly depends on the vehicle itself. Mine sounded good facing toward the cabin in my old car, but sound better facing the trunk in my current vehicle.
