Default Ideal sub and port firing direction in an extra cab truck?


I'm about to build a vented enclosure for my 2000 F150 extra cab for a pair of Audioque 12s. They will be on the floor against the back of the cab where the rear seat was. I have been planning on firing them forward since i tried some 10s briefly and they sounded great forward.

However I am out of the game for many years now and i feel It would be best to ask those who are IN the game I'd appreciate some opinions.

Which direction should I be firing my vented 12s in my F150 and why? '

i've had luck in my f-250 with subs forward, port up and subs up, port firing toward drivers side. i liked the first orientation a little better

So Im wondering if facing them backwards will give the loading effect like a car does or if Id be sitting to close to notice the difference in sound.

Also wondering if downfiring would give the same loading effect and/or if it would sound a bit more muddy or have less output than the other orientations?

I guess i'll have to put a test box in there again and see how each direction sounds at the drivers seat.

I'm still curious if backwards/down gives an emphasis on lows in a truck cab like it has in my cars. Always sounded loudest and cleanest backwards too, for me atleast.

Thanks for the responses.

Sounds like forward firing is the consensus around here and thats good. Forward is the easiest to build for my app. heh.

Profundus - I was wondering if corner loading the vent would be good. Sounds like it is. Cool deal.
