lol, I'm betting you will hear a change though, it won't be as loud to you but will sound cleaner. You'll be happy with that placement though, not much different than mine.
Hey you got me thinking, what are you putting on the front part of the box where the sub goes in? because, I can't find a pic right now which bums me of my Aurora with one 12w6v2 in the same spot. The front of the box was not carpet but rest was, the front was the simulated alloy stuff like my W7 logo in my trunk. Just add a layer to the front of the box, the metallic look is quite nice than black carpet, kicking myself for not doing that to my current box, maybe I'll get it done though. On top of that there were 2 6in. mini-neons that relfected off it (couldn't see the bulb) and looked great.
I recently just add 2 mini-neons to shine on my w7'* from the front, I actually don't have a pic of it yet, hey, I have a digi cam, I'll go take one now and show you/everyone.
I'll find a pic this week of my Aurora setup with it, but look into covering the front of box with something nice, you can carpet the rest. What'* your plan? since your going plexi back, you could just cover the rest of the box with something nice, it will be different than plan old grey carpet, I don't know why I choose Black carpet for my current install, looks good, kick my self for not going vinyl maybe same silver or close to as my car is. Carpet is more durable for a floor than vinyl, I do use my trunk sometimes, If I scuffed the vinyl, I'd be pissed.
Pic coming here in 5 minutes
