The sub box is ported, facing the other way. obviously. the plexi glass that used to cover the subs started to come loose, the screws actually started to come out. and the plexi glass started making an irritating rattling noise. so it had to go. naturally, removing the plexi glass destroyed the acoustics of the box, so i turned the ported side towards the fuel tank, stuffed a towel in the ports to clog them up and it seems to have done the trick. ghetto, i know. but i'm not trying to win any shows right now. eventually i would love to have a custom set up done. If i'm gonna take up the trunk space, i migt as well take up ALL the trunk space!
