Can you still fit the sub horizontally facing to the rear? If so, you could do sub back, port to the side.

From my understanding, sub directly facing the trunk lid isn't exactly ideal.

sub back toward trunk.... port to the side.... or sub and port back have always been my best.... facing the sub up will give u a termendous amount of trunk lid flex and u will lose some potential dbs

subs up and port towards the cabbin dont sound too bad..my friend did it that way and he had less trunk raddle... or you can have the subs face you and port at the back facing the trunk would sound better

sub up will viberate the piss out of your trunk lid
i tried it with a grand prix and a grand am and they sounded terrible

sub back/port back and sub back/port @ passenger side gave me the best results for lows on music

I've got an 18" ED 19ov.2 facing up and to the back (diagonal) with ports facing the rear of the car, I get some pretty intense trunk noise on some rap songs, but none on metal/rock, which is what I mostly listen to.

Unless you plan on gutting the deck lid and having the subs firing thro and loading off the rear window, i dont suggest it. If you cant fit the hight, run a smaller sub.

depends on ur vehicle. in my car, i have about a 16x6 " cut out on my rear deck and i put in (1) hdc3 12 facing up so the sub would fire throught the vent and port goin on the side and that was louder than sub facing back. i actually had less trunk rattle but the pressure was goin through the vent so in your case, yours would prolly be the opposite.

Subs back port back worked the best for me. Also try subs up port fireing into the cab with seats down when you can.

Not many options when running four 12's in a mustang, so I pretty much had to point my subs up. It gets plenty loud, but it beats the hell out of my trunk lid so bad that I keep breaking off spoilers. Seems that most of the trunk setups I've played with though, work best with subs back, ports back, or subs back ports to the side if space permits.
