    I want it to be louder

    right now i have a Legacy 2400 amp and 2 12" 1000 watt JBL's. Im not complaining that it dosnt hit hard, because it whams. but i want it to be louder to where u can hear me down the street. im on a pretty low budget right now (no job atm). should i add another speaker, bass tube, get different brand subs?

    is it sealed or ported.
    BTW most enclosures are MDF, its tiny wood particles pressed into board

    Re: I want it to be louder

    Ported/vented enclosures are louder then sealed.
    I reccomend you build one before you get new subs if you want more BASS !!
    ss3079 is doing box plans now, PM him about a ported enclosure.
    you will need the woofer specs= T/S

    well if its old and keeps messing up you should get a new one.
    For the box you should build one, if not than get a ported enclosure.

    hehe, cheap laugh.

    but i want it to be louder to where u can hear me down the street.
    *sigh*. I'll assume you actually want the system to sound somewhat decent, not just have the ability to be heard I'd upgrade the subs, and build or have built a ported box for them. Ported enclosures are more efficient than sealed setups, so you have the potential to get louder.

    Re: I want it to be louder

    I would build a ported box if i were you. I've heard it time and time again that BOX and INSTALL is everything. If you are not satisfied once you build your new box, I would check into some dynamat, I hear it improves your dB numbers and fixes that nasty trunk rattling sound. Finally, I WOULD try to find a new or used head unit. Brands I would suggest are Pioneer, Clarion, Kenwood.
