I purchased a Kicker CVX15
1000W RMS/ 2000W MAX
hooked up to a kicker zx750.1 amp

Its in a ported enclosure that has these specs (inches)
16.5 Depth
21 Inch width
15.5 Height

Port
1.5 Width
14.5 Height

What difference would it make if i got a bigger enclosure?
If this box was sealed, the volume would be 2.36

Model CVX15

Impedance (OHMS) 2 or 4 DVC
Max Rec Amplifier Power (WATTS PEAK/RMS)* 2000/1000

Frequency Response (Hz) 18-500
Mounting Depth (IN.,CM) 8-1/2, 21.5
Mounting Cutout (IN.,CM) 13-13/16, 35
Min Rec Sealed Box Volume (CU. FT., Liters) 1.8, 51.0

That ported enclosure is WAY to small for a 15. Also that port is small...

You need one twice that size or larger.

bigger boxes help your low end response and smooth out the response curve a bit, i.e. its less peakier

CVX's like very very big boxes.

Min Rec Sealed Box Volume (CU. FT., Liters) 1.8, 51.0
Max Rec Sealed Box Volume (CU. FT., Liters) 5.2, 147.0
Min Rec Vented Box Volume (CU. Ft., Liters)** 3.0, 85.0
Max Rec Vented Box Volume (CU. Ft., Liters)** 5.0, 142.0

this is what kicker recommends and you are not even at the minimum recommended enclosure size for your sub, just imagine how good it would sound if it was built in the middle of what kicker recommends.

With the power you're running, you need something more along the lines of 4-4.5ft^3 with a 33-35hz tuning.
