Question about direction of subs (limited choices)

I recently got a 1999 Firebird, and folding the back seats down, and taking the cover part off for the drunk area, I was able to fit a pair of bandpass boxes (each with two 12" subs) in the back.

Which direction should I face these for the best sound? I have to have them sideways, they wont fit facing forwards or backwards.

Should I face them towards each other, with a gap in the middle? Towards each other but very close, leaving a space between one side of my car and the subs, with the back of a box along the other side?

Should I have them each facing the same direction? And again, leave space between? or side by side?

Should I have them each facing away from each other, towards their respective side of the car? If so, back to back or along the side?

Thanks in advance.

Seth, I would get rid of the bandpass boxes, and go with a ported or sealed, firing forward or up into the glass.

Jeremy, when you say firing forward, what do you mean? I'm unable to face the boxes forward or backwards...only to the sides due to the available space...
