    comps wont play below 80htz?

    recently, my AA poly's have been sounding really crappy below 80htz, they used to play real nice and smooth, but now, between 80and 100htz, they make a terrible, kind of air-escaping noise when they move a lot in those frequencies.

    BTW they're in fiberglass kicks..

    does anyone have any suggestions as to what it'd be? here's what ive done to try to alleviate the problem..


    -non hardening clay where the speaker meets the kick to make sure there was no air leaks

    - 2 additional layers of fiberglass inside the kicks to make sure there were no air leaks

    -tried polyfil, actually made it worse.

    -Fixed the tinsel slap that was mentioned on here a few days ago.. did nothing.



    anyone have any other suggestions?


    ohh, also, Gain set at 90rms, -12db slope, crossover @ 80 htz (tried 100, and 125 htz, made little to no diffrence)

    thinking they may be to small?
