    why is my 1500 watt 15" in a trail blazer sounds weaker then 1000 watt 12" in a car

    I know someone that has 2 mtx subs with a old 1,000 mtx amp and it just seams louder then my 2 15" cvr's in a ported box with a 1,500 watt us amp. He set the gain and all that on my amp and he put it all the way without it making it sound distorted or anything like that. Basically what I am asking is because my subs are in the back of my trail blazer facing up and it is in a ported box, is it supposed to sound weaker then 2 12" subs in a trunk of a car? Or is it in a trunk of a car it makes it louder?

    suvs get louder than trunked cars because of the open cabin, most of the time and depending on the equipment.

    Ur stuff should def be louder but if u dont have ur **** installed right, some funky pups could run over ur system.

    What type of box?specs?
    What kind of amp?model?
    What type of subs? VC?
    How do u have them wired?

    Is your amp and sub wired to get 1500rms? They might be wired at 4 0hm only getting like 500wrms?

    You proberly have the ohms backwards. If he hooked you up, he's gunna huk you up to be weaker than him. So his 12s will pwn on yur 15s. Thats what i wud do.

    are you measuring how loud they get from the outside the car?
    if yes then i woul say its due to the fact the subs are in a trunk rather then in a open cabin
    i remember when i had 2 hx2s...they sounded much louder in the trunk of my friend's 545i
    then in the windstar

    if you're comparing from inside the vehicle there is absolutly no way in hell 2 12s in a trunk would get louder then 2 15s ...unless well as stated your install is trash
