    Icon32 Sub popping noise

    Hey everyone! I'm having a problem i cant seem to figure out. I have a Kicker zxs1500.1 powering 2 cvx 10" subs in a custom tuned box. Whenever i turn it up with heavy bass like dubstep or something it makes a random, loud popping noise. Like in the middle of a long bass drop it will be like "POP" or "POPPOP". It started doing it after i put in the new custom box, but never did it in my old box (ported Crutchfield prefab). I tried hooking up my other amp, a Kicker zxs1000.1, and it didn't do it at all. So my question is could it be something wrong with the amp? or maybe the subs are bottoming out in my new box since its a little over rms? Thanks!

    this...what is different about the custom box vs the pre-fab?

    the old box was a dual camber with 1.24 cubic feet per sub, tuned to 36hz according to there site. My new box is a a single chamber, 2.6 cubic feet, tuned to 33hz.

    did you run the 1500 amp on the subs in the old box? It sounds like you are over powering them, another question is did you load the new box in the vehicle different? I think you are realizing why most people here detest Kicker subs...
