Default box input please!

Alright after hitting a 140.8 im looking to try and improve with a new box. Currently i have my box firing towards the back of my trunk. It should be about 2.2 or so cubic feet. I was thinking about firing my sub and port into the cabin and sealing it off from the trunk. I know this topic is debatable and ive google the topic on whether its louder or what.

I was hoping I could get some input on this. I can go 15 high 32 wide and however deep i want. I was thinking about tuning it to about 38 hertz. My rear seats do not fold down, but i can take them out in about 5 or so minutes for comps. Do you think i can gain by firing my sub forward?

Equipment

1 HDC312 copper
1 Aq 2200d

Ive thought about the aero port idea....it would probably be better for tuning purposes as i could just swap ports. I am going for spl...but i do listen but i do alot of driving now so i listen to alot of music. I do think my setup sounds pretty good though with music.

well i wouls say tune to 38hz you say you would have more spl than daily i am thinking 2 4in aeros or 1 6in 2.0-2.2 cubes should be goodand i would probably set gain at 3/4 or so depending on your electrical and car factors
