    I don't think it's the h/u
    Many many people have used those eonon units with great results
    You probably are near the upper limits of the sub
    not sure how its the upper limits of the sub if he's not even playing below 35hz. I've seen people run 3k to a pair of sa 15s wired to 1 ohm and they didnt bottom unless they played well below port tuning with subsonic off with a moderate clip.

    Re: Sundown Audio SA12 bottoming out

    That's what's weird, I get this even with my subsonic filter on. With that said, I'm wondering if my sub is damaged in some way internally that would cause this. It still can hit as hard as it always has, but I have my gain really low for the time being until I figure this out as I don't want to damage it further.

    I'll try to record a video when I get home, not sure if it'll be helpful

    take the sub out of the box and record free air. Touch any parts like the dustcap, spiders or tinsel leads or spiders or coil formor for any signs of loose seperation or tears.

    I've had some issues back then where when pushed a bit, the sub would sound like a wood pecker destroying a trash can. It was a bad ground. the other time was my battery dying.

    Did that, it looks perfect. I'll try playing free air this weekend. Did I set gain super low to do this or what

    The sub is secured in the box (MDF) with wood screws. Is it better to use those metal things that dig into the wood to screw into?

    just slowly raise the volume up until you hear the noise I'd suggest going bluetooth and controlling the volume with your phone and removing the mids and highs remote wire so all you hear will be the sub. Try to push it as hard as humanly possible so you can feel where might damages be.

    If the sub doesnt make any noise free aired, then its your box falling apart.

    If you havent done so already, push down on the sub to see if there's any coil rub.

You sound like the type that would say my amps **** too because they are soundstream and were ~$150.
    Nah i dont hate on everything. Im getting a cab1600.1 and thats about as budget and non big name as u can get. I just dont like all these chinease products with a bunch of different brand names. It seems cheap to me. I guess i dont understand what you mean it has a factory fit. All hu shoukd look like a factory fit. They make mounting kits for EVERY aftermarket hu. For example my envoy has a doubke din factory touchscreen. If i replaced it with another double din it would look factory. Maybe if u posted some pics it would help us understand what you mean by keeping the factory look

    Factory fit...prob flush-fit I bet.

    Even a single din radio with the appropriate in dash kit and whoever installs it that knows what they're doing (John Kuthe's mystery install guy excluded) should look good.
