i currently have two cv 8d4's in a vented box. this is my problem, my amp is rated 380 wrms x 1 at 4 ohms. the gain is set just under half, the sub control on my h/u is set just over half, my subs are rated for 250 wrms and yet when i turn the volume up to just past halfway(yea, i know, alot of halfs) the subs start to "leave the gap". i was told that this won't hurt them(if not done all the time)yet it still sounds to me like one of them is smoked. one other thing, the low boost is all the way up(10 db). shouldn't my subs handle this power ok? i believe they are in series and parallel. they are 4 ohm dvc. so what gives?
as a possible solution i just priced eclipse 8708's and rf punch hx2 8's. i can get either or for $342 pr. which should i get? the vegas i have now sound clean and don't really want to lose that. i want spl too. any suggestions for either problem?
