Okay....I've decided to get a new fiberglass box for my subs. The one I had before, cracked right down the middle. So now I just have basic truck boxes in the hatch, and I hate them! What I need to know is this....I hear so many different things that you should have subs facing the back, and you should have subs facing upwards. Which is better? The box I have now, and when I had the Fiberglass box, my subs were always facing back. By having them fire upwards, will there be less bass? I heard that by having them face towards the back of the car, it's louder because there's more area to have the bass bounce off of to get to the front of the car. So I don't know what to do, and I need to get as much info as possible before I start designing my new box. Thanx for all the help! <img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>

Well hopefully this helps you...I have 2 10's in a sealed box and I have tried them facing the back seat facing up and facing towards the rear of the car and I didn't notice a difference in any position. I hope that helps.

The best way to find out, since you already have moveable boxes, is try different positions back there. Some say up, some say back, some say forward, yadda yadda yadda. Every car is different. Personally I plan on building fiberglass enclosure in the rear pockets with a Image Dynamics 10 per side. Also, if your previous fiberglass box split, it was built wrong. Fiberglass is a very powerful tool in the audio world and has been proven over the years to be great for sub boxes. I can try and find you some kickass links on fibergalss box building if you'd like.

Actually it depends on the placement of the subs. Best way is to make a temp. box and play with locations while having the car RTA'd. The RTA will tell yout he SPL in each location you use. Usually facing back gives you more bass, but you are gonna have mega bass with a hatchback anyway, since it gives you a added bass boost so to say compared to a trunk... ive decided to scrap the fiberglass project until later, because I need the car ready to go back to school soon. So, Im making a box for 2 10s behind the seats with amps, eq, xover, and caps on one side and woofers on the other. I'll post pics soon if anyone wants to check it out.

wouldn't that cancel out the waves man?? You'll have two subs shooting the same frequencies at each other, according to the laws of waves and modern physics, these two should cancel. I would think it would be best if you just used one!!

Also, how do you fix the box to the rear pocket??

They woouldnt be faced at each other, they'd be angled up towards the hatch. And I was going to rebuild the floor cover anyway, so where the sub box sits in the corner, I would screw it to the floor.
