Sub speaker selection help.
I am finally making head way on my install. All the components are being put into case. Now with the calculations i have done, there is not enough room for a 12 inch sub. So researching, they have 8 inch square speakers, which will fit perfect.
What I want to know is does the speaker have to face a certain way? I am trying to go for a 7.1 surround sound setup and want movies to sound amazing. With music, I just want it to sound well balanced, meaning I want to hear everything clearly, not just boom boom boom.
I notice on most installs the speaker is facing towards the left or the right. Would it affect sound to have it point up? The way my setup is, up is the only option. Also, with a sub box, is there any other area that has to be open, like to let air in and out?
Any help would be appreciated.
