Guys i really need your help, if you guys remember i posted a thread a while back about my 2 10s not being loud enough so i took your guys advice and am switching to one 13w7. And i decided to go ported as well. Right now i have 2 10" w7s in a sealed box with the subs facing toward the front of the car with one of my rear seats folded down ( i have a coupe a bmw 330ci). Now here comes the tricky part.... i am having major doubts right now as if i actually want to go through with it, as my ears are in love with the sound of these subs and how clean they hit. I listen to mostly hip hop, but they sound just amazing wiht techno and everything... nice clean, tight bass... will i lose this when i go to a single 13"w7 in a ported enclosure? Another worry i am having is that there are mixed reviews on how to mount this sub... some poeple say face it forward, some people say face it back. I dont know wat to do... but soem backround info is that the bmw trunk is amazingly sealed off so no bass gets into the cabin if the seats arnt down or if there arnet any openings. Well the designers came up with a wierd type of enclosure. They want it to fire through the ski pass and the ski pass being the port of the box. They basically are gonna build a sealed box and face it toward the front of the car... then seal off the space between the box and the back of my seats to create a sort of enclosure betweem the front of the sealed box and the rear of the seats with a port coming through the back seat ski pass... i am very worried that this isnt the right way to design a box for a 13w7! I thoguht the 13w7 needed a slot type port? Please somebody help me out, i really need some feedback i know alot of you are knowlegable about the topic... i am VERY sorry for the long post //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/smile.gif.1ebc41e1811405b213edfc4622c41e27.gif i need some suggestions of how to mount this sub in a bmw 330ci (2 door coupe) and if im gonna lose a significant amouint of sound quality by switchin to this setup....

THANKS VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE, and if anyone wants to persoanlly im me and help me out, my screen name on aol is pimpn04coupe@aol.com thanks!

 
1 13w7 in a bmw turn the sub around facing the trunk.

when i had my shiva we compared w/it facing inside the car right where the seat folds down, then we turned it around and there was a difference... he has a 5 series 1996 or something.......
