Hello Lee and mike,
The box will not basically in trunk. IT will facing up behind the rear seat, like the position of stock speakers.
I have a hatchback lee, like a Accord or benz. Its a Skoda OCtavia,

link don't work. but i think i remember seeing it before, red 4 door right?

and if i'm right, and you say it's like an accord, then it's a trunk, not hatchback. and you'll probably have best results from facing them towards the back of the car.

Actually, I can not buy sound deadning materials, like dynamat. Because, here in India, they are not avilable. And buying on eBay will cost me as same as buying a new amp. Without dynamat the trunk will be continously rattling. I havent installed my system yet, I've heared my friend's system. He has a cheap and crap in his car LOL, that also make the the trunk to rattle which looks like sh-it when someone is standing outside the car.
Thats why I am asking, that how much will be difference in the bass if I place behind rear seat and not in trunk.

i'm still lost if you have a trunk or not? if it's like an accord than it's a trunk. i'd put them facing towards the rear, maybe putting the rear seats down if you don't use them to open it up more. or not using the rear seats at all and face them inside the cabin.

or do you mean putting them on the back seats?

mike, i'm not planning to place the box on rear seat and cannot put down the rear seats. You knowthe place where the stock speakers are placed? on a plastic, or what it is, tray? which can be seen through rear windshield. I'm posting the link fo the car's pics as i cant upload here because posting msg from my cell phone.

I know lee that it will sound great in trunk. Buy If you have looked at the4 image, I dont have a lot of space. I have to travell around alot and cant afford to block the trunk. I just want to know that how much differene will be there if I place the box facing up behin rear seat after removing the deck rather palcing the box in trunk facing backward.

aman, the bass will rattle your car , so it doesn't mind where you put it, the difference will be in the way you feel the bass. You can put it where you want, but it's going to rattle.
