Ive met with a local installer to discuss my build desires and he started talking about "loading" the box. I asked him about different ports...aero,slot,etc and he seemed to like the PNR style the best.

Can anyone tell me what he meant by loading the box?

This system is for an 05 RamQC and will utilize a center console box, yet retain its capability of being a seat and retain the arm rest as well.

i have looked into many different subs from 8-12" and considered everything from sealed to slot port to even thinking about a tline.

Educate me folks

Well theres two types of "loading" that i have used and done research on.
Those being corner and boundry. Corner loading is when you position the enclosure in a corner two acheive a result.
The next is boundry laoding when you put enclosure close to a wall. Both acheive different but somewhat alike results.

Boundry loading can also include firing into the floor, which is what I suspect he is referring to in a console install.

So does the "loading" impact the way the subs sound? Is it a preferred method for building an enclosure/center console? What are the pros and cons of this type of enclosure?
