Highly dependant on how much of the crew cab space you plan to use

Wall it.... you really do want to... I mean, you are giving up the back seat already, might as well make the best use of the space possible....lol

I asked the same thing when I took my back seat out and most of the people said this:meter loud= port on drivers side,louder for driver= port to passenger side(I didn't hear a ton of info on port up or forward so not sure about them).I went with passenger side port because I built for daily, just make sure you leave room for port to breath and get ready for that door to take a beating(mine is fully deadened and ratchet strapped shut to the other door and it still moves a ton.As far as sub orientation it was either subs up or facing forward, I chose on top of box so a drunk person didn't recline into sub and mess them up.
As far as wall or no wall, now that I didn't wall it I wish I had I mean its nice to be able 2 look out your back window when backing up or 2 check your blind spot when changing lane but I drive a van for work with no back windows and have not had a problem driving it,so I would say wall it but that's just my thoughts.Also you wont have to deal with the annoying back window buzz/rattle trucks seem to get when loud and as much roof rattle(both my lights in headlined broke within a month of install). Plus you will be louder

That's understandable I was the same way, and the amp rack sounds sweet. Any idea what size subs and how many you are going 2 run? Also If your anywhere near New Orleans or Baton Rouge I will be going down there for Mardi Gras hopefully, so I can give you demo if it helps you at all.

Subs up, port up. That's what I've alway seen to be loudest. Had to maxximus 18s on 2 sampsons in 2010, in a 98 silverado that poor poor back glass. But it sounded great, much better than sub up port side or all firing foward.

I had a team mate trying to tell me this too but when I did research it seemed no one had any info on it. So sub up port up was better for daily? I wanna rebuild my box with birch to save lil weight and was thinking of changing port but didnt know what way,happen to have any pics? Sorry for thread jack op.
