    Okay sorry for being retarded and not looking thoroughly thru all the different threads but now I found the right one so I’m just gonna copy and paste.

    So I’m looking into getting some subs in my DC, however, I’m a total noob when it comes to these things. I like the downward on simply because it’s carpeted but the con with that is that I would have to get rid of storage compartment that’s under the seat and it’s just too convenient to get rid off. I like the forward one because I could keep the storage compartment (I think? I may be wrong like i said I’m a noob when it comes to these things) and the upward is pretty much the same as the downward pertaining to the con. Also what is the difference in ported and sealed? Does it matter? The file attached is just something I found on CarId because it’s convenient to me to look up. Thank y’all inadvance.

    Down or up you loose the storage as you said. That particular forward appears to be behind the rear seat. I went with down and two 12's. I took out that storage bin because I have kids so I never used that bin anyway. Here is the link to the box that I bought. They do have some videos on their site explaining the difference between ported and sealed.

    Nice, thank you I appreciate from the sound of it ported is the way to go. I’m still iffy about the down, up or forward tho. I’m gonna assume it doesn’t make a difference in sound quality?

    You might have to take magnet size into consideration. I have shallow Jl's but I am also sure(at least at time of purchase) there was no box that was big enough to have the required air space and mounting depth yet fit behind the seat to be forward facing.


    Edit: also speaker excursion could limit your choices too. Mine are like 1-2 C hairs from hitting the floor when they are going crazy. My first idea was 4 8's facing up...but budget limited that out and this box due to it already being designed vs paying all that money for a custom box.
