    Port direction in an Ext Cab S-10

    Ok, while over spring break I'm going to try out my Epicenter and my USA-300 in my S-10 for shits and giggles with a DD 1008 I have laying around. It is going to be a downward firing box, 1cube @ 40hz. My only question is what way to fire the port? I've been told to the side by some people and up by others... Anyone in here done a downard firing ported box in an Ext Cab S-10?



    Kicking the tires, Lighting the fires.

    Re: Port direction in an Ext Cab S-10

    no extended cabs have a space behind the front seats .. kinda like a trunk in a car.. just to throw stuff back there.. some trucks have fold up/down jump seats..
    i took one out just cause it woulndt be used with the box where it is
    pretty good amount of space, i got 5 cubes on one side of the tranny hump with the box below coax speaker level and the seat laying all the way back
