Default Port placement opinions... 3 8's in an f150

Gonna be doing 3 8's under the rear seat of my 4 door 2011 f150. Subs will be firing foward, will probably use 2 3" aeros. should I put subs in center of box with aport on each side? or put subs on one side and ports on other? Just looking for opinions, or anyone with similar setups. Thanks.

Ud be better off downward firing. Cuz if ur keeping the seat only a circus midget could sit there... 8" sub diameter... Probs closere to 8.25 for OD At least. Then 3/4" for the top of the box and 3/4 for the bottom. Thats almost 10"

Port on both side will be OK but if youre concerned with performance mainly in your seat then port to passenger with a few inches of clearance.

Thats not what im saying at all..... I just dont see how its worth it... Your gonna have to raise the seat at least 4-5". Not to mention for the 8" in the middle... Thats whee the. Hump is in the cab so the wholeeee seat has to get raised another 2" all im saying is its gonna make anyone sitting back there miserable!!

It would likely help with possibly loading issues if you put the subs in the center.

But I prefer the sub on the drivers side of the car, and the port on the passengers if possible.

I've got port on the drivers side only and it works great on my under the seat setup.
