    are the subs touching the back of the seat?... if too close all the sound is being absorbed by the seat back. is the back of the seat open (springs and cusion)? upholster the seat back to eliminate the sponge effect of the open seat back.



    good luck and good listening!

    you want to make/buy a thinner box to allow for some space between the front of the subs and the seat... can you move your seat up just one notch?



    good luck and good listening!

    do you think i should just go with 10's because the box is about as small as i can make it."with out hitting the magnet aganst the back of the box"or are the mouting depths about the same with a ten.

    depending on your budget, 10's would work, or you could do something with maybe four to eight 8" subs. just make sure your current amp can handle the ohm load presenred by the multiple 8's - or buy a new amp(s) - that is what i meant by "depending on your budget".



    good luck and good listening!

    Have you tried stuffing your box with poly-fill. It might make somewhat of a difference.

    well then go with the 10's and like phatillusion said, you will probably need some polyfill because of the small box size.



    good luck and good listening!
