Effects of volume? (not the knob one)
Ok, So I customed up a box for my trunk about 2 months ago, but I didn't have the amp at the time to keep it in the trunk and powered. I did however, hook it up to a buddy's Bazooka 200 RMS amplifier for a trial run.
The box probably has an internal volume of .6 or .7 after I have the Sub installed. It is a bit on the smaller side. My question is what effect does this have on the sound of the sub? Does it detract from low note hits? Or loudness? Or even cause a bad sounding sub?
I ask because when I ran it through the trial run on the Bazooka, it sounded like it was bottoming out, but the sub is 450 RMS and has been noted to be really reliable, lound, and clear for the dollar. Do you think it was the amp? I felt like I couldn't move the gains much at all before the sub sounded odd, but not blown. I'm only running 2.2v pre-outs, so gains are usually set higher.
