    Our point is that a Single DCON is not going to excel in a sealed enclosure and unless you're putting 2 at rated in a properly built sealed won't do much, either. Give your a properly-built ported enclosure and that 400W should work considerably better for you.

    Re: Not impressed

    Ok I'm stuck in a position and I'm not exactly sure what to do. First off I'm gonna port this one and its not enough do I get another one and a new amp and go from there or go ported with this and then just step up in subs to say and icon or xcon with a new amp as well?

    They come alive ported. What are your plans for the ported enclosure?

    For what it's worth I had one XCON 12 on 600 Rms and it was crazy loud with only 600 watts.

    I feel like youre expecting too much out of it. Also what car is it in? if its in a sealed trunk and youre comparing it to something youve listened to in an s.u.v. its not really a fair comparison. 400 watts isnt that much couple that with a sealed enclosure and an entry level sub and its not going to be loud.

    Re: Not impressed

    It's in a ext cab truck right behind my head I just thought its be louder but I guess I'll go 2.25cu ft ported and tuned around 33-34hz and have somebody off here build it.

    It will make a big difference I guarantee it.

    Yeah I understand that, I'm sure that you were just expecting too much from it sealed. The DCON is much happier in a ported enclosure.

    Re: Not impressed

    Yeah I think I'm gonna go ported and I'm sure it'll be louder. Should I stay with a single sub setup though? It'd be cheaper to go up the production line with gcon, icon or xcon than go with a double sub setup in the long run
