2 12's in tubes. Face one forward and one back?

Trying to get the best of both worlds. I know facing the back of your trunk makes the bass sound more full and is also louder. Facing front generally gives more punch and clarity but sacrifices volume and fullness. Has anyone ever tried putting one sub facing forward and one facing rear in your trunk?

my guess is they will be out of phase at certain freqs,meaning you will get the worst of both worlds. Best thing to do is try it and see if you like it.

Agree with PaulD. Opposite facing with create alot of turbulence at all frequencies. Are these boxes tuned to the subs or is it just two twelves thrown into bass tubes.
