    Very nice
    Only question I have is with the inside bracing on port, wont that effect or even trap some of the air flow/sound? I'm sure it isn't enough to make a difference, was just curious.

    Will, I'm glad I checked the ohms . My wiring was wrong . Now I have 4.2 ohms to each sets of subs. That may have been ugly.
    Another tip : always check and recheck wiring

That da**** f**** S*** wire had a split in the casing which touched the amp shorted to ground .( Took out the fuse ) . We went to best buy got two new fuse . Kicker fuses, 10.00 dollars ( 2 in a pack) Restalled them . System back up and working .

    Start with the gains all the way down, then turn the radio up to the loudest that you'd play it at. Slowly start turning the gains up until you either get the output that you're looking for, or until you start reaching the limits of the subs/amp to play cleanly.
