In just about all cars the subwoofer is placed in the trunk, way behind you. So at first I thought that naturally therefore the bass should sound like it's coming from the back, that's where the sub is placed after all.
But I just don't like it. I need that 12" sub bass, because the front speakers and 6X9's don't hit hard enough, yet it just sounds like the interior speakers are playing one bassless track while the subwoofer is some Mob informant I've locked in the trunk banging on the lid to turn the music down until I get some SQ.
I figure this may be a common problem, and was wondering if anyone worked out a solution I could use? From previous discussions, I'm aware I need to get deadeners and seals for the front doors, but I still need to bring the sub bass up front right?
I'm confused as to whether I should turn the sub's LPF higher to try and take over some mid-bass, or in fact lower, to create more separation from the interior speakers, though I'm not sure how the latter would help. My understanding of how a bass signal gets produced is obviously not that well informed, is there an informant who can help me?
