    Reverse mount/ inverted subwoofer

    I have seen people mount their subwoofers upside down and I think that looks tight. I've been trying to research it on the internets but haven't found jack. I just need to know some basic info, if anyone can provide some links that woulld be awesome.

    What info are you looking for? There is nothing to it just mount the sub upside down. There is no difference. You can actually make the enclosure just a hair smaller because the woofer will not be inside of it.

    Sorry I do not know any links to help you out.

    Check specs on the woofer that you're using. Some of them aren't built to be mounted that way.

    It is my impression that mounting the subs regularly/inverted doesnt matter. The inportant thing is that if you are using a sealed box for instance, you'll want to make sure that the air volume of the box is the same. Most manufacturer volume spec.s are for regular mounting schemes, which account for the fact that the volume of the sub is sitting inside the box, which subtracts air space. Some of the installs I've seen w/ one regular and one inverted are sweet... show off magnet baskets (I used to have 2 alpine type R dual coil subs... never got around to making something neato for them). Hope that helps

    yeah - it can look good - but what about wiring? I have sen one maybe two vehicles where the installer actually put enough thought into what to do with the speaker wire...otherwise, it's about as lame as it comes....IMO at least...lol

    I totally agree with Red. I have seen ALOT of cars with a really awesome enclosure and inverted chrome subs only to ruin the entire job with horrible wires going into the enclosure. Details are what makes or brakes the install.

    Yeah, before you invert the sub, get some blingin baskets and wires. Maybe even some EL wire for that special touch.
