    Is my Type-R getting quiet on me?

    Hey, so I have been getting into the whole car audio scene, I am not one to want the LOUDEST thing on earth but I want something with great SQ. Also, I want to be able to crank it up if I feel like it. That being said.... I had 2 sony xplode 10"s in my truck with a 1200 watt amp powering them and I sold them to a friend of mine and bought one alpine type R 10" sub powered by a Alpine MRP-M500 mono-channel amp. (so I could have some back seat)

    Now to the question:

    I hooked everything up, I have a 1800 watt wiring kit hooked up to the amp. I listened to it for a while and I guess I broke it in properly but it seems like it is not as loud as it was a few days ago. I have messed with the eq and slammed the bass all the way up (for a few seconds) and it dosent seem to be 1/2 as loud as it was before. The sub is only 2 weeks old.

    Help if you can.

    True, I sorta was thing about that but my 2 sony's would hurt my ears after a while. I am a drummer too. I'm just trying to destroy my ears.

    Ported, it's a 10". If you mean the dimensions of the box, I have no idea. The guy who got all of that for me got it from bestbuy.

    That could be part of the problem right there ^^^ prefabs =

    If you put the R in a properly designed custom enclosure, it should be just as loud if not louder than the Xpoops
    1.75 cubes @ 35 hz should be about right for that sub

    how would that account for them getting quieter? yes custom boxes are better but thats not the problem here
