will hit a ton harder if you can get them all on the same plane and firing the same direction etc.

thats got to have some bad cancellation

why the... never mind. Just a suggestion like expo said, you already have them sealed so you must not be worried about extreme spl. So why not look into a glassed box/false floor on the trunk. Glass the bottom using the spare tire well, encase the sides with mdf and point all 4 subs up?

Bet those 8" midbass in the doors will sound nice though! Good stuff!

well see, this is just one of the test boxes i built. it does have a ton of cancelation. but see. i cant figure out how the hell im going to get all 4 in a row when i only have 16 inches high,37 inches wide and 32 inches deep to work with...my next try is going to be all firing down.with the ports coming up through the 6x9 holes...what do you think?

most anything would be better than that. if four wont fit your better off doing two.

how about...

a sealed box, taking up the entire floor of the trunk, including the glassed part of the spare tire well. With subs inverted. You cant tell me you wont be able to fit that.

Depending on the depth of the subs you might not need to invert them. Just mold along the shape of your trunk. Finish the top with cosmetic panels, possibly flush your amp in there?

Oh I didn't realize that was you w/ the red ex. Yeah there's a port there if I can remember - down near the bottom, a little on the small side.

do people time align the drivers in the high end mobile systems ?

Meaning delay the signal to certain speaker components so they are all fireing at the exact time ?

It is very common in professional live concert settings. ( and a PITA too )

my cd player is able to do the time delay. I started to try and figure it out one day but it involves to much measuring distance and math. Then i started to think about it. If i do all this measuring so that it sounds great from the driver seat, whats its going to sound like in the passenger seat (yes my wife drives sometimes lol) so i just let it be.

Yeah phase, time correction all that stuff I'm sure comes into play in some of the best SQ vehicle setups out there. My alpine has time correction - too lazy to do it right so I just tweak it till it sounds good to me, screw my passengers :p

lol it is a huge, and heavy mofo. Get the subs too yet? I had to ship them seperately so either would not get damaged.
