subs facing the window because the sound waves will bounce off that towards you grin

I didnt think it really made a difference which way they faced. Aren't base tones the same whichever way the speaker faces? confused

bass frequencies a non directional, that is why it is not important on the way they face, you face them backwards, because a 20hz wavelength is about 15 feet. if you face them forward you would never hear it. facing them backwards also introduces an effect utilizing "corner loading" which will help the bass out a little. it also reduces some of the muddiness of a cheap amp, cheap speaker, improperly adjusted gain. that is why bass sounds louder outside the vehicle than inside. now some say well mine hits harder inside. midbass yes will hit harder on the inside. but i am talking low frequencies 25hz and below. not 80-100hz

The only thing you might want to look out for is placing them too close to the rear window, if the cone of the sub hits really hard, it could crack, or shatter your rear window... you might not be able to keep the shelf, depending on the size of the box and all, i used the carpet from the bottom of my trunk, i just threw it on top of the box, it looked "stock", and when i went out to my car, id take it off and run the subs, i guess it is a little labor intensive, but its cheaper then getting them stolen, and getting my car broken into... By the way, none of those positions are louder... depends on how much power you put into them (JK)

Facing window is best, because sound waves bounce of the glass, as already stated.

when you guys put in your sub did you all take out that tray??

is there a difference between the type of enclosed subs that are closed with plexiglass and have the holes on the top and the ones with no plexiglass and no holes?
