turn the frequency on the amp to 80-100. And you mean hz, not db.
its prolly the box....

The easy answer is that your amp is probably fine.
You must have a box that suits the specs of your new sub.
If its not right it will sound like crap.
some subs just play certain frequencies better. maybe the new one just ***** at playing the higher frequencies. i know when i went from my old style type r to the treo ssi that i have now i gained a whole lot of bottom end over the type r. some subs just excel in the lows some excel in the upper bass region.

With both filters set at the same number it'll play that frequency louder than any other frequency. The further away from that frequencey you get the more it's filtered out.
The 1501d is also only stable at 2ohm. I think I read somewhere they can be modded to run at 1ohm. I have th 801d and this is the info I was given. Here's a link to the owners manual. http://www.mtx.com/caraudio/archive/...801D_1501D.pdf
I have my pioneer deck at like 80hz for the sub output and I don't have the freq on the amp turned all the way up but pretty close. I don't think your amp is the problem. I think it's a combo of wrong settings on amp and deck and probably not the right box.
After quickly glanzing at the specs for that sub it's rec. enclosure is .5 to 1.0 cu ft so the box shouldn't be the problem here cause you said it's in 1.0 correct.
Ok guys I just confirmed this crap. I grabbed my old Orion (only 500rms) and threw it back in there. Man....that thing will rattle the brain!!!
I had the truck parked in the drive way and it rattled the windows on the house. With the Pioneer you can literally stand beside the truck and hear nothing. Not even the doors rattle or anything!!!!
Its got to be the sub. But WTF!!!!!! I heard all this hype on how freaking loud and amazing these Pioneers were. For god sakes it can handle double the power. Did I just get a ****** one or something???
Since you bought it new from a local dealer, take it to them, and let them fix it. That's part of what you're paying for, is their customer service.
Thou hath not so much brain as ear wax.
almost sounds like what happened to mine--turns out i had a broken tinsel lead
