Are you looking to just change subs and enclosures or are you wanting to swap out amps and wire and such? Also what kind of vehicle do you have and what is the current enclosure your subs are in?

I think Rabbit is getting at, instead of change just subs which at that level really wont make a difference. Focus on the box, its the key

yea i didnt think about that, a new box is prob all u really need. We'll need box measurements and sub model number, so we can see how ure current box is playing

Plus amp and wiring information. Make sure to include model number and how its wired, thoughs memphis can get pretty loud in proper box im sure

That is where I was going to go if his current enclosure is holding him back any.

What amp are your subs on? You may be wanting to get louder than what your system is actually capable of. How much power are you actually putting to your subs?

Sounds like you have a prefab enclosure. This could cause some of the issues your having. More then not you will want to upgrade your whole sub stage. This happens from time to time. You get used to what you have and then you out grow it. Then it is time to move on and get a little large. Depending on what vehicle you have and the space you are willing to use there are many options out there.

The main concerns for upgrading that need to be though about are...
1. Cost. Set a budget and look around
2. Don't buy more then what your electrical will handle(unless you plan upgrade before installation)
3. Figure out the amount of space you are willing to use for an enclosure and any other items that need to be installed in the back.
4. Always think of the future. If you know you will want more later then try to purchase items that will be usable later on.
