ok, i have a zx200.4 amp pushing my kicker ds525's. now, it doesnt seem that they get that loud. i set everything up correct. i dont have the speakers in a box. i made a panel that my amps are on with holes cut out were i then mouted the speakers. i didnt use any dynamat. there not in a box. it seems like the cone is bottoming out or something. the bass is highly distorted without getting loud. my questions are.
should i use something like dynamat.
should i redo this whole thing and box them?
when i turn my filter on to filter out the lows so i only get the highs, should i still get a little bit of lows cuz i am.
