Re: '96 Explorer XLT: Best location for tube subwoofer?

try placing it at an angle towards one of the back corners instead of
directly perpendicular to the back hatch.

how far away is the driver from the back hatch?

Thanks Wabbitslayer. The driver seat is probably about 7 feet or so
from the back hatch.

Re: '96 Explorer XLT: Best location for tube subwoofer?

that's a pretty good distance for the waves to bounce off of...you could try
moving it closer to the back, too, which I've heard helps (no personal
experience with tube subs), but then you've got this huge thing right in the
middle of your cargo area. you might try turning it sideways and firing it
towards the side of the vehicle.

This is a subwoofer we're discussing. Non-directional.

Yes, we. It's in the thread, and it's specifically what you responded
to.
Right there in the subject, even.
Subwoofer puts out bass; bass is non-directional. That's why the
location of a subwoofer isn't critical.
