    A PEQ would do the trick but, maybe try corner loading. When I corner loaded my XL it became flatter but, made it peak 55-60hz to a point where it was annoying.

    No I haven't tried that, Its already a lil bigger than "recommended''. What should I stuff it with? Polyfill, fiberglass?

    The sub is in the rear corner of my trunk, firing form left to right across the car. Is that what you mean corner loading?

    could also be that it lacks output down low, not that 50hz is too loud.....

    Re: Want to feel bass more than I hear it!

    Yes, when I asked about parametric EQ I was going to follow that up by suggesting you cut with 1 band centered around 60 Hz or so. This can even work with a graphic EQ, but it might not have a band that's close enough to really target the problem. It can't hurt to try it. I would do that before blaming the sub or the box, or anything else, really.

    It would be an interesting experiment to see how the same box sounds in a different vehicle or even, say in your living room if you have a suitable amp to test.
