    How to make my ED 15" louder.

    I have an Ov.16.2, and it doesn't sound as loud as it should be. I have a legacy la790 amp, 1200 watt POS. and the sub is in a 3 CF sealed box. I think the sub is wired to 4 ohms, and it isn't loud at all. I'm pretty sure its the amp, but any other input would be helpful.

    The sealed enclosure is twice as large as we recommend.

    Reduce the box size to 1.5-1.8ft^3 and get an amplifier that puts out clean power.
