Did a little experimenting last night and with a recommendation from a friend, he told me to turn my downfiring box on it's side so that it was firing into the trunk instead. Wow... sure did sound a lot better! Of course now I feel more of the bass aimed at me instead of feeling it on my butt! Really a combination of the two gives the best bass feeling imo...
Can you all take a look at that box and let me know what you think? Later on I plan on getting new subs, but at least for $40 if I could get a sub box that looked better (and one where the carpter color actually matches!) I'd spend it. I just want to make sure that this box will work well with my 10" p5's and sound the same, if not better, than my side-ways downfiring box.
