hey guys/gals,
i used to have a jeep chearokee, with 2 audiobahn 12's. i had one mounted normally in the box and one /w the magnet facing out. sealed encloser, with seperate chambers. i did it for cosmetic reasons, but truthfully i didnt notice a difference in sound wether the magnet was facing in or out. why is this??
also
i just bought a '07 elantra (nice new look to '07) getting 2 more audiobahn's :) now with my subs in the trunk will it matter for spl which way i mount my subs?? (remember i had those other audiobahns in a jeep(no trunk) )
thanks

It didn't matter, because it doesn't matter. As long as you allow for proper phasing between woofers, magnet in vs magnet out won't matter at all. You will also need to make the "magnet out" enclosure or chamber smaller, to allow for the difference in driver displacement.
In answer to the second part... again, it won't matter.
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

I think you'll probably hear a difference, even with the same setup you had before.  They are two different cars.  One has a trunk.

An '07 Elantra is a sweet car.  Doesn't she deserve something a little better than that?

Build the box so that it performs well in the worst case scenario and, in return, it will reward you at all times.

Tell me you're not getting 2 more Audiobahn's. You can get much better subs for about the same price.

Of course the hardest part about mounting subs inside out is pushing on the magnets hard enough to turn them inside out in the first place.  Most subs you have to stand on, some you have to use a Ford F250; Audiobahhumbug subs can be turned inside out by a little girl.  mounting subs inside out -- posted image.

thanks for your advise.. put for about $120 per sub $50 for box and $150 for amp so $440 to hit 145db all day long is worth is to me.. :)

I highly doubt you hit 145db's...maybe on the walmart BOOMSTICK.
But on an AC 180 or 190 or the TL...you won't get anywhere near 145dbs
