I believe that usually facing them backwards is done for "booming" where you want everyone in the street, and every poor sould in every house you drive past to hear your basslines... whereas into the cabin is better for sound quality...
apparrantly backwards is louder also because of resonance but unless you want an SPL record, you're going to go deaf if you have speakers in teh front loud enough to balance in with the bass if having the subs facing into the cabin isn't loud enough.
