    Type-x Mechanical noise?

    I just got a Type-x from a guy that claimed was barely used. Came with a ported box that he build that has good construction quality (it's not carpeted so I can see). I'm running it off my cadance amp at 2 ohms so its getting 1000w exactly. From the driver and passanger seat it sounds great(this is a scion tC with the sub and port pointed up at the hatchback), it will drop deep and and plays accurate through out all the ranges. But if I get close to the box there is mechanical noise. Is there mechanical noise usually associated with this sub? because I thought this one was known for its quietness?



    05 Scion tC
    Subs = 15 inch power hx2 in 3.5 cu/ft at 32 hz
    Sub amp = Cadance ZRS-9

    FOR SALE:
    Ford BNIB 240 amp alt, only 200 shipped

    It isn't port noise I know what that sounds like. It's more like a high pitch movement almost clicking sound that changes with pitch. But It's not a sound of hitting back slave, happens at all loudnesses but gets quieter as sub does.

    ???

    i know if you have it up too much in a ported box it'll bottom out (makes i tapping/clicking sound). thats when you need to adjust your SSF, or back off of it a bit (this is what i do). could be the amp clipping it. is the gain maxed out?
