  1. u could get the rockville k6 sub get a pretty large ported box for it which will make it more efficient.. if u can make a box pm me i could check it and tell u what size to make it
  2. problem is that amp is really like 180 watts rms or so i agree with him get rid of it. u can get a power acoustic 2300 at walmart tested 600rms for like $70 (and it's a copy of a precision power ion 650, it's the same amp).. if u keep boss u need to look at sub rated low power with high db rating and since amp is 2 channel SUB MUST be 4ohm svc or 2 ohm dvc so u can bridge amp, something like https://www.ebay.com/itm/JBL-CS1214-1000-WATTS-12-CS-SERIES-SINGLE-CAR-AUDIO-4-OHM-SUB-WOOFER-NEW/391124580378?epid=112099926&hash=item5b10d7781a:g:kCAAAOSw1p1amZ-b:rk:1:pf:0

    What brands do people like for speakers?

    it shows on pg 27 that it does have hp xover set that at 80 hz and if u ad amp to the speakers select off or full or bypass the hp xover.. just use the 1 on hu because it's easier to change and set, set at 80 play song drop down to 60hz if u hear distortion at all go back up.. it'll depend on what music u listen to and how loud u play it.. i just added $ foam speaker baffles to mine today and i can lower mine to 70hz instead of 100hz because it sort of acts like a box

    i'm sure it's just like mine jvc/kenwood same company now.. xovers are totally different from eq.. it just says xover hp and then u got tweets/front/ rear/ sub and set them where u want them

    What brands do people like for speakers?

    i just mean hp xover on the amp.. either use that or get hu that has one they are easier to control from hu because u have a digital read out and easier to get to.. if u want best 4 channel cheap pioneer 8604 i think it is tested higher than rated.. i just have $120 kenwood x301 (new one is 302 i think) it has all xovers u need + 13 band eq, time alignment, 24 bit da convetor, bt, usb pretty nice for the $

    What brands do people like for subwoofer?

    lol ported is by far the loudest., it does take a while to learn about them.. if u just want like 2 subs in sealed box look at alpine S or dayton 12's

    What brands do people like for speakers?

    infinity, jbl, alpine, polk, even pioneer are pretty popular i have soudqubed coax they ok (u need hp xover for any speakers though either amp or on hu).. if u want super sq then look other pro audio mids and tweets especially if u have "active" hu

    sundown sa is best selling of all time.. i have a fu750 pretty nice and under $200.. depends what budget is, how many u want and how much power u have or will have and if u have the electrical to support that amp

    My subs play treble and mid range at a low volume

    it coulda messed up anything from amp to sub but if u sure wires on the box are correct pull subs or if u can disconnect 1 sub do that see if 1 of them works.. if they wired together u have to pull one.. only other thing to do is try your amp and or subs in another car

    Sensitivity and Watt's Question

    another thing to consider is the headunit make sure it has a hp xover that will make speakers sound much better and have less to no distortion.. i run my speakers off hu and sounds pretty good with xover set at 100hz so they make no bass of course i have a sub.. if u don't have a sub at least u can set xover at like 70hz to keep speakers cleaner and make them last longer.. kenwood x302 i think is new model like mine it has time alignment, 13 band eq 4v preouts, bt, usb and 24 bit da convertor (which helps alot making speakers louder) and it's cheap.. i have sound qubed coax and with a xover they pretty good but i would say look at the infinitys, jbl (basically the same speaker) and polk even pioneer like u said look for db rating 91 or higher https://www.amazon.com/Infinity-PR6500CS-Primus-Component-Speaker/dp/B00IFAX38S/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1538982017&sr=8-4&keywords=ALPINE+SXE-1750S https://www.amazon.com/Polk-Audio-DB651-Certified-Speakers/dp/B000P0PF9G/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1539326269&sr=8-3&keywords=polk+6.5"

    did u reverse the + and - on the box or amp?.. please try that before buying anything else, amazing how easy that is to do..
  15. i have sound qubed coaz they ok just make sure u have hu that has hp xover on speakers and many will sounds ok alpine, polk, rf, pioneer all have ok speakers for cheap.. look at db rating u want pretty efficient ones for hu power 92db is good.. also get silk dome tweeters u don't want cheaper tingy ones.. for rears u can just get a midrand no twwet don't want trebel behind u anyway.. i use cheap replacement dual cone speakers which means no real tweeter on it.. parts express has some grs i think the brand is for like $14 each that'll work for rear again u need hu with hp xover to keep speakers from distorting with bass unless u amp them and it has xover but even then hu xover is better and easier
