Tried different positions with current box to see what it may gain you? Maybe if you can find your sweet spot you can work off of that?

well the way the box is now i can either port to pass or to driver side but about to build another enclosure thought about subs an port back or subs up port back. Was hoping someone had the same body style Malibu that could point me in the right direction

I have a 2013 Malibu. Just built a box for it that is sub firing to the drivers side behind the fender well and port forward. 2 cube box with an 18" (mostly external) port for 31 Hz tuning.

I was mainly going for small and compact. Have not put it on the meter yet but sounds to be close to 140 db with a single 12 and only one 4" aero port.


How big are you looking to go? Do you have 2 12's? What tuning are you looking for?

These cars get really loud with subs forward, port facing the drivers side of trunk .

Some are louder with everything facing forward, and some are louder with smaller box in trunk at slight angle... his will get loud almost every way, but sub forward/port to side sounded best in that car to me
