    Getting the most out of Sundown SA-8

    Right now, I have one SA-8 in a .56 ft^3 box tuned to about 36 hz. I have 500 watts on it right now. I guess it is good for an 8 inch subwoofer, but I guess I was expecting more. Should I try a bigger box or what? Maybe going from a 12 inch HDC3 to this is kind of a big difference. I don't know where I am going with this. Basically, should I put it in a bigger box or do I not have enough power for it? Am I just expecting too much?

    hmm well i really cannot do much about increasing power, but that seems like a bigger box than what is suggested with that power.. I think I may try .8

    IDK, I wouldn't do more than .8 cubes to it. And it's all preference to tune, I prefer 28-30..
    Louder what frequency?

    32 Hz would be a good tuning.
