building a down firing box.
i have seen it said that you need a speaker that is suspended stiffer to do it so it will not sag. is this fact/myth/BS/or somebody assuming. i also saw it said that it would take more power to operate because gravity would make it harder for the cone to come back into the basket. i just can not see this because in theroy then, it would take less for foward excursion and speakers want to return to center naturally anyway.
the reason i ask is because i am going from a sedan with a truck mounted sub, to an X-cab and want to point the sub down to hide it and protect it from damaged. it will also allow me to still use the back as storage.
last question, what is the min backspacing i need from the magnet to the back of the box. it is a decent twelve that most likely never sees more than 100watts max.
