Question: why did you face the sub towards the front of the car? Wouldn't it sound louder if you faced it opposite direction or had it laying on its back?

yeah i did it for looks. basically cause i never drive with more then 1 other person in the car. i may turn it around one day. it looks good either way. and the wires work both ways .

It depends on personal preference.

I had a couple setups in my monte and forward facing gave me the best sound. Some songs the low bass was louder rear facing, some songs bass was louder forward facing.

It's not just for looks...
