i have a sub box in my reg cab i made, nothing fancy by no means, its ported and tuned correctly to sub specs....my problem is the lack off bass, its a 10" premier sub running off an alpine mrp 500. it works fine but when i have both doors open it pounds retarded, hits really hard....the port is currently on the top....any suggestions on what might help? i cant get the port on the same side as the sub, it is possible i could do a slot port but last resort hopefully. if i cant get anything figured out im just gonna make a new one all together with a different design.pic added for reference.

IMO behind the seat boxs just are not that good with accoustics etc, if you wanted to really slam loud you should of went with a 12 slim or higher depending on what space etc you had to work with etc, 10 are decent, just more of a accurate tight bass. Are you only running 1 10"?

Almost all ported systems sound better with the doors open, also when your driving you can roll the windows halfway down for same effect

pretty sure its the limited airspace in the cab, even my doors aew harder to shut. anyone have any experience with sealed boxes in reg cabs?

Of the few Reg cabs that I have heard, tens firing down seemed to sound the best to me. The bass was spread more through the cab, where a speaker firing forward into the rear seat was more muffled, and localized. Another design which I have seen a few times, but have yet to hear, is one or two subs firing forward on the drivers side of the box and a port firing sideways, toward the passenger side of the rear corner of the cab.
