Default Enclosure opinions

Hey guys,

Well, the first of two 18's is on it's way tomorrow so I've been wanting to start cementing a plan for the subs and port setup. Im really not wanting to do a full wall, and im going to go with one of the following options. There are ups and downs to each one, which is why im not too sure on my choice yet. Just let me know what you would run and why

Option 1: Subs up, port up...this one I think would be my last choice I just dont think it would get as loud as the other two..and wouldnt allow a very good setup for an interchangeable port

Option 2: Subs forward, port in the rear window...I just think this would have the most potential to get loud, but since im wanting to try and do an interchangeable port setup, this would make it very difficult because I would have the port pretty darn close and up in the rear window..

Option 3: Subs up, port forwards...this is my first choice as of now, all I would need to do as far as the interchangeable port goes, is take out my seats and swap it on out...easiest and I also think it'd have plenty of potential to get loud


So, my vote would be #3 right now, but just wanting to know some opinions from everyone.
Thanks

Me too ....but the swappable port will be much, much harder to pull off...#3 just fits in that respect so well.

Yea, I see what youre sayin...Im still pondering whether or not it'd even be worth it to do a swappable port-wall

This will mostly be for fun and not to compete really (though i'll be going to plenty of comps with it)...so I might just stay true and stay low-tuned for comps
