yes you can turn you sub around at the end of the day the sound is stil travelling into the bass box.

do you want to do this for looks? i have turned 2 of my subs around and there is no sound difference. if you need any help just ask one of the members of Frozen Audio

no my subs arnt free air, there isnt that many out there that are truely free air and the ones that are, are silly prices.

as long as the box is air tight you will get the bass out of it. if it is inside or facing out side.

frozen audio needed here to confirm my advice

Come on Acey boy we need u here, its a alpine SWR1241D and it is currently facing outwards on a seealed box.it is looks i wanna turn it round for yeah but im not willing to have a good lookin but awful sounding set up. Im pretty sure itll need a ported box. Mine is in an alpine box which has a perspex panel on the back with the R logo and u can see the basket but i wanna see the basket outside and the cone inside the box.

its irrelavent if its a free air sub, the idea of the box is to amplifiy the sound. as along as the box is 100% sealed you will be fine. no matter which way the sub is facing it is still using the box. Personally alpine aint really good looking subs, personal preference. THIS WONT EFFECT THE SOUND QUALITY

oh wot amp are you using????

you see with some amps you can select which way round the subs are mounted. But they are on high spec models.

if you mount them upside down it creats more feely bass, but if you leave them the right way round you can hear more of the bass
