Say you had a full size single cab truck and were using the center console as the enclosure. One sub firing forward, one rear. Will this cause weird issues or be alright ?

If you did run into issues it would be with phase.
With them firing front to back like you should be able to flip the phase a full 180 on one to bring it into phase with the other.
But in a console like that in the same commen area you should'nt have any problems at all.

Just flip the phase on one of them. This is no different than if you mount 1 sub inverted.

Just wire them up just like you would if they were mounted side by side. DO NOT WIRE out of phase....

You would only wire one out of phase if you inverted one of the subs....

This seems very different to that scenario.

In fact, if they are sharing the same enclosure, flipping the phase will mean one is pushing when the other is pulling, negating the effect of having an enclosure, easily going into over-excursion. With the subs out of phase, you'll also get very little bass, because what one plays will be cancelled by what the other plays. (except at certain frequencies where they might be in phase due to path length differences)

It might work OK with them both in phase, but you will encounter phase problems if the path length to your ears is different for each sub. You'd need to have different TA on each sub to correct this.
