Default Best position in trunk for dual 2 10's sa v3.

Hey guys upon this question a friend of mine informed me that the sub box placed at the end of the trunk lid facing to the rear is best position for his 10" alpine 600 watts. He told me that he found that from Crutchfield and other youtube videos.

Don't get me wrong it seems like it made his 10" louder than my 2 10's @ 1500 watts look badd. I haven't tuned my system to 100% but I thought facing the inner cabin would be loud towards the rear seats and just fold them down....i thought wrong....

Anyone have experienced or know that having the box close to the lid is louder than where I put my box now.


Thanks.

Facing rear should be louder unless you face forward and seal it off from the trunk.

My friend said close to back of the trunk....where the lid closes....I've heard it...wow i surprised. And that wasn't with any bass mechanics it was just some mellow iration songs.

Facing the rear helps lower the cabin peak and bring the peak closer to a traditional subwoofer enclosure tuning
When you face the box forward your vehicle peak will be higher and unless you tune accordingly you will not be as loud(or simply sound as loud but may meter louder)

I would face the rear and move it as close to the seats without choking the subs from the front.
Some people have great results facing the cabin but moving the box as far back as possible

I have a standard trunk not like a hatchback.

So you mean to say in cabin firing but box all the way close to the trunk latch?. Seats are usually folded down most of the time unless I' have my wife with me in the car then seats are up and closed.


Thanks man

Best thing to do is try a bunch of positions every vehicle is different. Sub up port to side can get loud aswell if you have that port setup

All right. Yesh that was good on my hatch 02 accent with 2.7cubic and my x 12. I sold it tho. Got 2.5 cubic. 2 dual 10s and port in the middle.

Maybe I'll try two positions. Back of trunk in cabin and to rear positioning.

Both. But x 12 needed more power I only have cres. 1500.1. The sa's sound more powerful but I like the deeper and lower end of how the x 12 was. Js. Both are awesome setups for my taste. @ 33z 2.5cubics.

I question how extensively you have tested in trunks. All of your statements are false
