    Default Best place to put subwoofer?

    I just bought a new system: PA D5000.5 Amp, MM6501 speakers and MM10DVC Sub. My question is where should I put the sub for best sound quality. As far as I can figure it out, the basic choices I have are behind either the driver or passenger the front seat in a thin crew cab type enclosure or in the back behind the rear seats in a more squared off box. I have a 1998 Subaru Outback station wagon. Any input would be appreciated.

    Generally in hatchbacks like that, the best place is behind the rear seats firing toward the rear. The actual ideal place would be right up against the back firing into the cabin but this isnt practical cause everytime you open the rear hatch to throw your groceries in there, youve got a big sub box in the way.

    Hatch, facing the rear. If the box is too small, flip the sub with the magnet facing out. It will protect the speaker and give it more volume, hitting deeper frequencies. Might need to flip the wire/polarity to keep it in phase with the door speakers, but probably wouldn't be able to tell as it would drastically overpower the doors.

    generally further back the better as far as facing it not as big a sound differance as using the right size box for the driver .
    My car subs sound best tuned at 40 hz

    Ideally, it will be great to place it at the back seat. Just try to figure out too the best hz for your hatchbbox.

    like one other said, in the trunk facing the rear. this will help negate any kind of frequency cancellation that would occur otherwise.
