I just installed my 10" Pioneer sub(which I have mounted in a sealed enclosure) and Jensen amp into my car(1997 Intrepid). The amp is running bridged to the sub giving it 166 watts rms power. After hooking it all up I closed the trun and turned it on to see how it would sound and to my dissappointment I could hardly hear or feel the bass from it!! I opened the trunk and then I could actually feel and hear it, not really hard or loud but deffinately noticeable.
So for some reason my trunk is killing the output of my sub when it's closed. This same setup sounded awsome in my old Daytona-which was a hatchback-which I can understand why because it was a hatchback
My question is this, how do I get all or at least most of my bass back out of this sub? Should I build a ported box/port the one I have or just mount the sub free-air style against the back seat? Or maybe build a bigger box???
