Good equipment badd sound

MANN !!! IM ABOUT TO GO CRAZY !!! I HAVE 2 KICKER CVX 15's ON A MTX 7801 AMP AND IT SOUNDS OK, BUT I KNOW IT CAN SOUND BETTER. I TRIED PORTED BOXES AND SEALED BOXES AND JUST CAN GET IT TO HOOK UP THE WAY IT SHOULD. DOES ANYONE KNOW A SECRET ABOUT MAKING THESE CARS PRODUCE SOUND?!?!?!?

Your first problem is that amp. Upload pics of the install and more than likely I'll be able to help you out.

Back from my loud stereo days here is what I remember...

Look at the specification of the sub-woofer, and see how much air space the manufacturer (you know they pay engineers to figure this stuff out!) recomends.

There should be specifications for Sealed, Ported, and Free Air Installations.

I myself like sealed boxes, but to each their own.

Buy a box that meets the manufacturers specifications.

Then make sure you don't under power, or over power the speaker.

back in my car audio days, custom boxes where all the rage. I started to teach myself, box designs, Sealed, Ported, Isobaric, 4th, 5th, 7th order, blah blah blah, and other "audiophile" information.

Just find the cu. in. volume the speaker needs, and plan your L,W,H, dimensions.

Bigger amp wouldn't hurt.

Is your Amp Gain set right?

Does your head unit have provisions, for subwoofer control? +/- db?
