Ported subs in a car is pointless...and is normally only done for SPL wars not accuracy. small cabin vehicles net so much cabin gain there is no point to deviate from sealed. Car audio is completely apples to oranges compared to home audio and should not be compared.
I'm really really considering it! Just for more fun, last night I spread out my v1500's. I kept one front left corner(and finally got to use my other Pangea stand!) and put the other one as an end table next to my small couch. This puts it somewhat nearfield firing at my other couch and mlp. I angled the one in front to also face me and also at the same angle my left mt-110 is toed in.
I kept the two 15v's in their rear right corner placement.
Using test tones I individually set delays on the now somewhat nearfield v1500 and the 15v's.
I left the delay/distance alone on far left front corner v1500.
I must say it sounds very good. The big null I had in the middle of the room is almost gone. War of the Worlds pod scene was very intense, clear and impactful at only -20. As was Earth to Echo spaceship assembling scene.
I know, without actually measuring with REW I can't truly know what's happening, but before I venture down this new route it can't hurt to play around.
There are only so many placement options in my room, and through much trial and error, and many many movements of subs I do feel that should I get the dual s3601's one will be front left corner and the other rear right.
We shall see, here's a couple pics of how I have everything now.
Thanks again to all that chimed in!
