Can't hear my new sub
Hey guys -
I finally installed a sub in the trunk of my 85 Olds Delta-88. It's a JL 10W0, in a .8 cu ft sealed box. Powered by a RF 160.2 in bridged mode.
I have the amp gain all the way up and I can't even hear it from inside the car. The 6X9's in the rear deck are way louder, and only running off the head unit. From outside, I can feel the trunk sheet metal vibrate. If I open the trunk I can see the sub moving, feel it blow air, and it's pretty loud.
Maybe the rear seat of the Delta muffles the sound too much? Maybe 160 wrms ain't cuttin it? What should I expect for volume with this setup?
