Default Hatchback

What is the best way to position your subs in a hatchback. Up or to the back like on all other cars?.. This is a VW GTI

if your not going for serious SPL comps...then IMO it really doesn't matter "but you'll get the best aiming them towards to rear "...putting subs in any hatchback will give you great bass response

I had 4 10's in a golf once. They felt like someone was hitting you in the back of the head. I used a Trapezoid shaped box faceing the read up toward's the hatch

The hatchback cavity will distort the sound from the subs very badly. Optimum sound-wise sub placement requires custom enclosures shaped to have the drivers and/or the ports radiating directly to the cabin, while preventing sound to enter the hatchback (that requires some air-thight junctions). Bandpass enclosures are very useful to achieve that as the holes for the ports are considrably smaller than the corresponding holes for a direct radiating driver, and ports may extend outside the enclosure as required to get some spacing.

a hatch back will not distort the sound if done correctly end of story..
