Bass response is how fast your subs can change notes right (if not, oh well). Anyway, there's a song by Toby Mac, called Phenomenom [Blanco E Chegro Mix], and it has a really nice bass line, that goes up and down, kind of quickly, but not that quick. And my 2 AA Assassin 8"s just can't do it, and I've noticed they have problems with some other songs as well, almost skipping entire notes and then barely playing the end of them. And when it's a long bass note, you can hear it slightly going in and out almost, when on my home sub (12" Dahlquist) it's nice and smooth and just goes through basslines beautifully.
I'm thinking the problem is my "box" though, which isn't a box, but two Bazooka tubes. Not sure if this is common problem with them or if they're even the problem, but even though I was stubborn before and didn't want to build a box, I've got to now. These things get loud, but they just can't replicate music, and there's like a "whooshing air" sound that it makes my speakers make, something I've never heard from a sub in a box.
I just want to know if this is the actual tube problems, or do AA Assassin 8"s have problems with kind of quick basslines (I really doubt it's the subs, seeing as how they are so highly reccomended).
And one more thing, they do this no matter what volume, so it's not like I'm asking them to do to much, because even when I turn it down, they still can't keep up with the bass at times
And this song (Toby Mac - Phenomenom [Blanco E Chegro Mix]) sounded great on my old PowerBass 10" in a sealed box, but it was nowhere near as loud as these two 8"s. However, I'd much rather my (avearge) sound quality back then a spl shitfest.
