Default CRX Box

I am getting ready to build a box for 2 12" RF T2 in a crx. This is going to be set up for MECA so i cant go forward of 26". My questions is do any of you have any advice as towards sub forward port up or sub up port up? I could prolly make the box smaller and have ports face the rear but it would be hard with teh 26" rule.

Can you elaborate on the 26" thing? Is that referring to height of the enclosure

Meca rules state that the box and anything attached to the box may not come forward 26" from the back of the car

I don't think he can go more than 26" off the back wall.

I'd try subs up/port into the corner first.

Subs forward, ports up works well for larger subs like 2 15's.

With 2 12's you should try subs up and ports to the side.

Not in MECA.

He's allowed to go only 26" from the back panel for the enclosure and anything attached to it.

That layout also only works well when the meter is on the dash. MECA measures at the headrest.

The loudest crx's in MECA either do sub forward/port up or sub up/port side.

Depending on power...And limitations, Subs up/forward and port side tends to work well.
