    i was thinkin bout doin this, what do yall think

    well i was thinkin bout movin my box around to see if i could make it louder but i wwanted to see what yall think before i change it all around, what i wanted to do was turn my box sideways because the port is on the side on the box and put the port facing in the middle seat of my back seat that folds down (it's a dodge durango) but what i was worried about was that the sub is gonna be about 6 inches from the of the car, but i figured since the port would be face right towards me that i might gain a little SPL what do yall think?

    in cars you get more SPL by facing the speakers and ports to the rear. of course you only get like .3 decibels from what i have seen...

    anyone else have experience with trucks?

    In my jeep it's louder if I face the sub up and the port fires back against the door.
