    I need some help or opinions...
    The box if for two 12 inch woofers (Shocker Extremes)
    Under the hatch of a 1994 ford probe..
    I want to go ported and tuned low...
    I have 6.6 cubes MAX if i keep the hatch cover on and about 8 cubic feet MAX if i take it off.
    I dont know how i should face the subs or port....i have been through various designs but never posted on here about it....
    any input is appreciated

    Definetly download Winisd Alpha it's a great guide. Are you enter comps? My friend had a probe 4cuft 2 JL 15' W0s sealed enclosure. The way back glass slopes it doesn't look like going over 6 cubes would be a good ideal just my opinion.

    Like Flynfrog said Subs and port and the same plane fire towards the glass. I'm guessing your going with SPL tuning so 38-45hz slot port with a port plug for testing.

    Get some dimensions and I'll be more than happy to help out.
