Why is the bass not as good as factory speakers?

    Told my friends about the project and one gave me an amp and another one a box with 2 12”s the amp was on the floor in my friends garage... hasn’t been used for years and box was sitting in the attic for years too. They’re not high quality but it would do the job.

    Notice some difference after putting sound deadening on the right rear. I can hear the right rear speaker better but I ran out of it so I’ll add more later.

    Thank your friend for the box and 12s, that's a nice gesture, but if I were in your shoes, I'd use just one in a better box, or trade it off for an 8 or 10 in a transmission line configuration. 2 12s will be too much for the cabin size.

    Yeah, it is a little loud but at the same time not very clear and takes up 80% of the trunk space. I just lower the Sub volume from the radio. The subwoofer brand is “Vision” never heard of it and it looks old. I’ll take a picture of it soon.

    Listen dude, you already have too many subs for your car, so you should go whole hog for bass head and source... I dunno, 10 more? Then you could blow the windows out at stop lights :mrgreen:

    You don't tell her you read the manual, and you tell her you know what the problem is, and you fixed it, because that what men do, fix things
    sure it has a flat response, and sure it has a lot of detail, and yes, it has good and clear lows. But is it enjoyable to listen to? Does it make you grin ear to ear? That’s what really matters.
    Seen somewhere on AudioKarma (I think)
