Need advice from a sub guru...
I just bought a powered sub combo. It's a small square-ish box (about 15"x12"x8") with a 10" active sub on one side, and a passive radiator on the other, with a built-in amp. I am able to mount it either standing it up (with subs facing side-to-side) or lying down (subs facing up and down).
My question is what is the best way to install it to get the deepest bass? (not trying to have a "boomin system," just fill some low end). I have a VW 4door sedan with a trunk that is completely empty except for the sub. Therefore I can install it anywhere in the trunk, and I can install it vertically or horizontally as mentioned above. Where in the trunk should I install, and in what orientation to get the deepest bass? Further, if you believe it should be installed vertically (on it's side with subs facing sideways), which way would you face the active sub? If horizontally, is it better to face the active sub upwards or downwards?
