    Dude sell all of them and get you atleast 3kw..
    If not sell the sub and amps and start over..

    experience is key!! otherwise life is boring, uneventful and pointless..

    ported at 32 htz would be the loudest and deepest bass

    Ported boxes 9 times out of 10 are going to be louder than sealed

    If all u got is 2k don't buy the sp4
    They need a hell of a lot more power..



    knowledge is powerful but imagination is exponentially powerful..

    experience is key!! otherwise life is boring, uneventful and pointless..
