I have a Kia Sportage 2008 EX. I just put PRV door speakers and a Scar audio Ported Box with Kenwood Speaker. First time build. I get great Bass to the point where my side mirrors and the inside of my car shakes. There is a song by Travis Scott called "Don't play" and it doesn't hit hard as I want it. I don't know if its the bass but there is a rumbling in the track that should shake the car but doesn't. What do I have to get to make that type of bass or treble (not sure what it is, you have to listen to the song) shake the car?

I always felt that the car shake was an unwanted effect of loud bass. Anyways, there's going to be resonant frequencies in each of the car parts. Start off doing a sweep. You'll notice that there's a lot of variation within the same car. If you're getting resonance at high bass frequencies then you can always sound deaden those surfaces to get a lower tone. If your goal is only to affect the mirrors then go hz by hz until you do and figure out if that frequency is acceptable or if you want to lower it, but I don't know why you'd want to not be able to see behind you while driving.

Ok. I have a Kenwood DMX4707S 6.8 and it has a equalizer I'm trying to learn. I didn't install this stuff myself because I'm a noob but my friend's dad did. What do you mean "unable to see the behind" The 12 in woofer doesn't block my vision. And the shaking isn't to the point where I can't see a thing. Everything is fine. I just want other sounds in the car to be louder.

If you want it to be louder I'd suggest making sure that your amp is level matched to your subwoofer as a first step to get the most out of your equipment. The description of your amp is important, as is your subwoofer's model number.

You are experiencing the upgrade bug. Double cone area and or amplifier power.

You arent bassin unless your rearview mirror looks like an acid trip.

You aint loud if you can still use your mirrors.
LMFAO you are right about that man. I'll save up more money and try to better the sound.

if you just got a random premade box, your sub is not hitting the low frequencies enough. You might wanna fork out money for a custom made ported box tuned to the low 30-34hz range. You might also just save up and get two beefier subs and an amp while you are at it. One thing that saves you money in the car audio long term rabbit hole.... when you upgrade.... UPGRADE. Dont do small additions here and there, do it big... You actually save money from being happy the first time vs not being satisfied and constantly wasting money buying and selling small increments that dont make that big of a difference.

there's a whole sub culture dedicated to bass so loud its rearranging people's internal organs, its not really enjoying music anymore its more like a life and death thrill seeking experience that never lasts long since your body gets acclimated to the SPL. Its also destructive financially and makes your vehicle useless but people do achieve inner happiness.

True, I just felt like that was ultimately for the purpose of noise (volume), not shaking a vehicle to death. Like don't people sound deaden strategically for SPL competitions to increase their numbers? I figured they wouldn't do that if they wanted the highest amount of chassis flex.

Sounds like a typical higher tuned/prefab issue to me, try to play far enough under tuning and your subs will basically freeair without the added output/control around tuning a ported box delivers. A prefab is usually listed airspace/tuning wise without speaker displacement accounted for so a 1.75ft3/36hz might change as much as 1.55ft3 almost 40hz tuned after displacements with a beefy enough sub. Plus lack of port area can be a real hinderance with prefabs at times.
Now imagine playing with power at the subs limit and you'll see why a ssf is recommended for most ported setups.
