So i went back to my parents house the other weekend and decieded to pull a kicker SK80 bass station a friend had given to me out. Never actaully got the chance to jam it so i figured ide get bored and play with it.

Hooked it up 150rms @ 4ohm via RF P6002, and it sounds like a tiny dog.... Lol by that i mean it had little to no bark, deff no bite.....

I thought when kicker was all USA there products were bangin? This is not the case, is it the stillwater box or just a baby 8?? Its Fq range isnt bad but anything below 40Hz sounds hollow

lol it was just sitting in my garage so i figured what the hell, why not bring it home. Would it do better in a diff box or is it not even worth the effort lol

that box is horrible
Lol i thought it may be the box. I pulled the sub out and it looked like it should give nice lil thumps, nice thick magnet(for a tiny 8in) and not very shallow

So would it be worth it to make a nice lil sealed box for it?

firing direction and listening position will have a lot to do with it...

Kicker is THE best sub, ever, period. Game over, gg, ttyl. Doesn't even matter what model, they are all the best.

In the car i was actaully holding my hand over the port and thinking.... this sounds better hahahahha i may open it up and screw a back plate to the port hole... need to see what kind of space these 8's like sealed though. Any suggestions? If i need to reduce space ill prob just glue some wood in there or sum crap haha
