    it's cause you changed cars as you can see the car has a big effect on the sound of a system. You can look into making a bass coupler to port the bass directly through the rear deck

    also you said you had a band pass box before correct?? well the bandpass box would have produced more bass at the freq. that it would be tuned to where as the sealed box is more for sound quality as opposed to spl...hope that helped...

    Hey check your wires from you speakers to your amp, If it sounds like *** and is nothing in comparasion to what it used to be, you probably have a phasing problem with your subs. Look at them when they are hitting do they look like they hit at different times?? Is it somewhat loud outside the car when the trunk is popped, and sounds like absolultly nothing inside the car??
