First off, I'm a newbie here so I appreciate in advance any advice and opinion. I used to be pretty hardcore into stereos, but getting married and having a child put a damper on that for a while. Last week I came across a PowerWedge w/ Two 10W0-8's for only $75 on eBay and couldn't pass it up. For an amp I have a Profile Baja 600 watt 2 chan (I know I know) that I got for free from a friend. Finally, I have a Pioneer DEH-P9300 headunit.
So, got all this hooked up and I was a little disappointed in how they sounded, keeping in mind what I have for an amp. I popped open the box to see what I was dealing with and encountered 2 things. First, they weren't wired in series. Second, they're packed with the fake insulation stuff. Now I know there are theories on insulation, but I've been out of the game so long I can't remember. I've since changed the wiring so they're in series.
So my question is...keep or pull the insulation? The PowerWedge box has the partition in the middle.
Also as a side note, my deck has the sub controls for the level, crossover and phase. At first, it didn't sound the greatest, so I put the phase on the deck to reverse and it sounds great.
SO, I appreciate everyone's input and look forward to any suggestions. Thanks!!
