Does the bass still sound good even though they're facing outwards? This is exactly how i want my subby..

Cheers,

suposably having the subs facing that way is the best way to have them because the sound hits the back of the boot and then bounces back in towards the car, or sumthing like that

meant to be better having them that way tho.

looks pretty good good how u still have your room in the boot aswell i like the look of it with the two amps on the side as well.

nice job

rear loading will "often" produce more volume in the lower bass region. The trade off is the reduction of upper bass punchy-nes

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............

nah i am pleased with it, i find it to be a little too punchy in the higher frequency bass, i will have to fiddle with the cross over points. In my last car (ED, god rest his soul) i experimented with subs facing front and back, i like the way it sounds rear fire. personal choice i guess !

I think your set up looks really good.

You have your amp and subs, and boot space. Nice work!!!
