^^^yo GhosT does subwoofer placement really change that much. What i'm trying to say is I have my 1 12" in my trunk facing the lid of the trunk but i've seen subs facing the inside the car. Does it make a difference?? Which way is better? I feel when it's placed facing the outside of the car sounds better.

It depends..sometimes you can gain a little more dB by facing it towards the car, but usually when the subs are hitting off a trunk, a rear window (like in an suv) it sounds better and gives better vibrations..When I did the dB competetion at tweeter you get 2 runs, the guy told me I should try facing my sub forwards to get a little higher dB, I didnt try it because I didnt think it would, but Ive heard it does

there is no set way turn the sub direction and see wats the loudest for your car. all about the Resc. frequency of your car which is a process to find out all in itself if u wanna do it technically.

and subs are upside down for show some are made specifically to work better upside down dunno wat ones off the top of my head

^^ thats right, you wont notice much of a difference, a dB meter might show u a slight change, but who the fu*k cares unless your tryna compete and your tuning your system

you don't want to face your subs towards the front unless you can fold your seats down, and even then i still think mojority fo the time it'll sound better rear firing

One advantage of facing a sub down or inverted is you do not need as big of a box. The magnet and the structure of the sub no longer has to be accounted for inside the box thus allowing for a smaller box with the same sub.

not always, it depends on the sub and the specs

tried on a 99 eclipse when the subs are placed facing the trunk lid the ysound way better then when the yare facing the back windows upwards

really no diffrence only when you put your seats down and face te subs your way to the front of the car is when you will hear a diffrence

it shouldn't matter how your subs are faced.

bass isn't as directional as high's are

which is why subs can be put in the trunk.

ifyou want a better sounding system, just make sure ur mids and tweeters are facing the right direction, an inch or two can make all the difference with those.

when i face my sub to the front(towards the engine) it sounds louder in the back...and when i face the rear it sounds louder in front of the car...so id rather have it fire forward..just my observation might be different in different cars..

first off you shouldnt want any sound to leak out the car period . but a majority will come out the front side cause theres not much you can do to stop it

the subs will sound better if u face them towards the front of the car but only if its completely sealed around the back seat. if u face it towards the back it puts more presure on the trunk lid and causes more rattle. with it facing the front theres less and u get more bass inside and outside the car. but remember this only works if their sealed.

no offense i dunno where you get your info but you arent right on a copuple topics


every car is different the real way is to find the res. frequency of the car. but thats a pain in the a.ss and need expensive machines so thats why you take the box face it to the back for a few days then drive with it facing up then facing you for a few days and see what you like better. my moneys on facing the rear in most cars and almost all SUV's and up in hatchbacks but i dont know what car u drive

and you can get your back end to stop rattling with various sound deadeners

wat u really suppose to is put the woofer in the front of the car for true sound imaging( ever notice at concerts or any live shows all speakers are in front of you) this take sh*tload of custom work and not worth the fu*king time in my book.

ok i said completely sealed around the seat. since in a hatch and a suv u cant completely seal them around the seat that would rule them out wouldnt it. and only leave cars that accualy have trunks. and yes it does sound best that way. my friend justin johnson who took second in the world finals with 2 w7s and 2 zapco amps and who also works at the local car audio shop told me this and proved to me. he did this by letting me hear cars that wernt like that and then the same car after he sealed it frontwards.

and about the rattle. no u cant stop it. u cant stop it because u cant stop the air from pushing on the metal. and its the air pushing the metal away and letting it come back together that makes the rattle. it doesnt matter how much sound deadening sh*t u use u cant put it between ever peice of metal in the car. (also something i learned from justin).

have u ever seen any world breaking cars? no sounds gets out them not even a drop cement in doors and other drastic sh*t will stop rattling and any possible sound at all. and subs facing inside and having them sealed off as in a wall are 100% diff things.


just curious wat numbers did your boy hit with the w7's at the finals and what kind of mic
