    I had the local shop tune the amp and I'm gonna take it to the shop across town hopefully they'll notice something that I didn't. It sounds like its not even bridged

    You might just be expecting to much out of that 12" in a sealed box.

    Re: Not impressed

    Add to the bass boost comment. You're clipping the bejeezus out of the signal going to that amp right now. Your sub won't go that much longer if you keep the settings like that.

    That's still a boosted signal.
