    Re: SPL Tips

    Ahh whatever I'll get the thread going. Play with box positions, angles, move it all around until you find the single loudest configuration in your vehicle. Next play with seat configurations in the vehicle, trial and error, maximize your SPL and remember how everything goes. Write things down as you discover them. Move sun visors, arm rests, open the glove box, etc. Small things that can make a big difference. Duct tape around the surrounds of your subs and see if it helps. Use PVC pipe to round off edges and see if that does anything for you. Try bracing doors, trunk, roof, windows, anything you can try to see what gains you, and write these things down so you know exactly what does what. Little things can go a long way.

    Re: SPL Tips

    I heard resining the inside of the box works well.



    Best receiver ever?
    I think so

    Re: SPL Tips

    Resining my box (inside) gained me HUGE...

    Duct tape is also my best friend. Little things go a long way...
