Yes, you can make a boat-shaker from behind the observer's seat. You will lose 5 to 6 dB of output which means the sub driver and amplifier have to work four times harder to achieve the same output. It can 'hit', 'boom', 'thunder', 'rumble' and so on. All inarticulate and percussive in nature. But not much of a musical bass-maker. Not much good for any stringed bass instrument.
A smaller woofer and enclosure under the driver's dash will provide more output with a significant performance increase in bass attack, transients and tonal construction. But less boat shaking.
If you port the observer's compartment, ideally you would want an open vent approximating the woofer surface area. And you want all venting as low in the bathtub (cockpit) as possible.
