    Ideas to make my door speakers louder

    I currently have (4) Rockford Fosgate T16 6x5s in my Gmc Sierra. They are amped off with a Memphis Pr4x50 amp. I have them tuned to the best of my ability and they are decently loud, but I want louder. Does adding an Equalizer increase the sound in anyway? Any suggestions as to retuning ( I thought I did a fair job tuning it - no distortion, but could potentially not be putting speakers to their maximum ability)

    Any ideas would be awesome! Thanks in advance

    ^^This. Bigger amp, possibly better components, do a proper install. Install plays a huge part.

    The doors are deadened. When I heard them in the shop they sounded much better than my setup. Probably should've asked what amp they were using. Are these speakers capable of being overpowered?

    70 watt RMS - no crossover. Was told the amp had one built in

    It also reads that is has (ICC Crossover
    The Integrated Concealed Crossover hides the crossover inside the basket, creating a cleaner look and easier installation.)

    If the amp has one you need to set it. Could be your solution. If your speakers are playing low frequencies then this could be what's limiting you from setting your gain or volume higher. I'd look into it.

    I might've been mistaken. (The ICC Crossover) is in the door speakers. The amp box says it has a "Fully variable high pass and low pass crossover"

    Re: Ideas to make my door speakers louder

    i'd leave them in the back and replace the fronts with components ,also a larger amp for them as well

    Re: Ideas to make my door speakers louder

    70 Watts RMS
    140 Watts MAX

    So I have each speaker wired to their own channel. Maybe I have them wired wrong. They are 4ohm speakers and this is my amp

    WoofersEtc.com - 16-PR4X50 - Memphis 50W 4-Channel Full Range Class AB Power Reference Amplifier


    Here are the specs of the amp

    Continuous Power at 4-Ohms: 50W x 4
    Continuous Power at 2-Ohms: 75W x 4
    Continuous Power at 4-Ohms Bridged: 150W x 2

    Am I wired wrong?

    Everyone always seems to overlook the need for this... Ccf seals to prevent cancellation. This will help tremendously.

    Aside of that do you think my wiring is done correctly?
