General Car Audio Discussion & QuestionsAll general car audio discussion goes here. Need help installing speakers, headunits, amps or electrical? Having problems with equipment? Have questions about a product, post here.
I've been reading through the trunk threads on here and read some good stuff. I'm wondering what everyone is running and how loud they are. What box/port orientation have you personally had success with, how much power, etc.
Ive ran 3 differant single 18" sub setups in the trunk of my Bonneville with good success on low power 1000rms-1700rms. Ive always ran sub up/ports back orientation. 18" AA Mayhem on only 1000rms - YouTube
Sub/port orientation will differ from car to car and whether your seats fold down, how much power, what subs you have or intend to run, etc. SPL or daily is a big one too.
Personally, the old standby that's never let me down is sub(s) up, port to the side. If you have the chops and room, I love me a bandpass blowthrough for non folding back seats.
I know every car reacts differently. My seats fold down and I should be running a saz3500. This will be for daily pounding. I don't really care about numbers. Which ever is loudest to my ear is the orientation I'll stick with
