Well I decided to throw a center channel together, but it turned out to be very boomy, and I was wondering if you guys could help me fix it.

the enclosure is home to a pair of Hertz Hi-energy components since I had them lying around. The box is about .9 cubic feet, sealed, and a decent ammount of bracing. 3/4" mdf throughout..

Any ideas?

at leas 75% full, it will have the effect of being a bigger box

maybe you need a better crossover... aren't comps meant to be in free-air applications

Start here. If this is too minimal of a change then make a much larger enclosure sealed with liberal amounts of poly. As stated, most car comps are meant to work without being loaded.

the crossover part is something else to consider.

Do you have the T/S params of the said drivers? If so, post them up here.
