Hey guys, I'm going to be running an American Bass HD 15 in a 4 to 4.5 cube box tuned to 37-39 Hz (haven't built the box yet so I don't exactly know) in my 03 Base.

For a single 15", what do you guys recommend for sub and port firing position. I was thinking sub up/port back, or sub and port back.

On other forums, I've been reading that sub up/port back will flex and rattle the hell outta my trunk lid. Assuming I deaden the lid well and fill crevices with a hardening foam or something, which is the better choice?

I'm looking to get the most SPL I can without so much rattling that I sounds like a washing machine full of nuts and bolts.



Also, where should the enclosure be? Should it be tucked against the seats as much as possible or closer to the trunk lid? Should I remove the rear deck speakers?

I think its personal preference, My last box was a pair of 10" Kenwoods in a bandpass style box. Had it tucked against the back seat, subs facing rear, ports facing up. Running about 400 watts RMS.

If your seats fold down then firing into the cabin is the best way as long as you seal it off from the trunk. This will give you the most spl / least trunk rattle. This will keep all of the bass in the cabin and also IMO the bass sounds tighter and cleaner.
