Default Finally got my system in!

I posted this in the wrong section before.

here's the original set up with the amp between the box and back wall.





I like to lean back so I stood em up with the help of some scraps of wood from lowes to level it out.







I put a napkin over the port to show how much air these bad boys move.

The smaller wire just makes the box look bigger!

Does the sound change a whole lot from being laid down (speakers facing up) and standing up?

To me it does. Before I could feel it in my body but with it up it feels twice as intense and the whole truck shakes now lol

The back seat holds it in place very well.

If the lenght of the port is running up and down, the pack will look like it "levitates"

Curious as to how those Kicker subwoofers sound in the ported box. What is the tuning frequency of the box ? Does your amp have a subsonic filter ?

Idk about the subsonic filter or the tuning frequency. It's a temporary box until I get one custom made.
