built a new sub box for my 2 12" alphas...it 3cuft sealed(didnt have enough room in new vehicle, use to have them ported)now i new they wouldnt sound the same or be as loud as the ported...subs sounds poppy to me and hit low at times like the ported setup but then sound weird...what should it be tuned too on the amp..thanks

in that case i would have to get different subs since they are dual 4ohm...so ur saying its making that weird noise because the box is small...i put some polyfill in the box too...would that help or hurt it?

If the box is too small poly would only help. As much as 30% so I've read...

so i was thinking today at work about my options and i think im giong to take one of the alphas out and put a new top peice on the box and cut out only one sub...so i will be runnin one alpha, now could i port the box now that im only running one..the box is 3cuft...i was going to add the port facing the rear of the vehicle and leave the sub facing up...or should i do both sub and port facing up(port would be wehre other sub was)...next question is it possible if i send the sub back to rd can they change it from dual4ohm to dual 2ohm? so that i can use it on my 1750.1 at 1ohm?...here are some pics of the subbox in the explorer so u can know what im talking about...only the caperted portion is the box the black platform underneath is to level it out and house the amps...

nice setup and yeah that should be enough for one sub ported and you should be able to get it reconed for a fee lol

thanks ill take some more pics later got a jvc double din and some infinitys in the front doors but cant be seen powered by 2 channel pa amp hidden under sub box along with the 1750.1,,,yeah i knew it would cost money jsut wasnt sure if they could change the voice coils like that...or if was jsut worth getting a new sub and keep the two incase i ever go back to a bigger ported box and run both again...should i email steve about that? and i was thinking about porting it too 34hz...?
