I'm looking for comments on sub orientation in an '82 Celica liftback to help me with enclosure design. This isn't my car but it is the same model in case you don't know your old cars right off the top of your head:
I do keep my back seats down the vast majority of the time so everything behind the front seats is wide open.
I found a few references to backfiring subs in 'normal' cars with trunks to make sure the sub doesn't suffer from canceling waves caused by it not being at one end or the other of the vehicle. The back end of the 'trunk' in the Celica isn't near tall enough to actually direct backfire but I could build the enclosure for anywhere from 45deg up and back through up firing and on around to direct forward firing.
I will do what I can with the enclosure to allow multiple orientations in case the designed one doesn't work but still... comments?
Edit: Should have mentioned I am looking for SQ and assume I'll be building a sealed box towards that end
