    subsonic filter for my sub?????

    I currently have an Alpine 9815...A 10" L7 solobaric with the factory ported box that is being powered by a Sony Explod d1000p5 which says 1600 w, but i know thats bull...My question is that when I purchased the sub..the dealer recommended that I get a subsonic filter which was built into a kicker crossover. I thought this guy was just trying to get another 100 bones off of me..but after reading around..I think he was right. Do i need it. What exactly does it do?

    my hu has a MX button on the bottom left. When I have it on..the bass sounds way too loud..i believe it distorts. I Have turned this off because im afraid that itll f*** my sub. There is a T coor button that I have no idea what it does. My gain on my amp is like on 4.5. I did push in the knob like you said and put the sub w level at 13. What else can i do to make it sound better.???I just bought a subsonic filter on ebay for $40...its a kicker crossover with ss filter on it. Will this help.?
