Thanks man! And to seal it I didn't want to use the crappy expanding foam method... Even as messy as it is it won't get every little crevice. I used normal gorilla tape and extra wide gorilla tape. Then I stuff air conditioner foam in all of the seams also to help seal it off really good.

Haha thanks man,
I tried to keep it clean. Any pointers for when the setup is firing towards you? I'm still getting used to the different sound of sealed from the trunk firing toward me rather than the SQ maintained by firing it at the trunk.

a center port could give better sq in theory, would take testing to find out.

After adjusting my amp this morning now I have the output I was expecting from the sundowns lol both with SQ and sheer pressure and raw power... I knew somthing wasn't right because my re se-x subs hit harder and sounded better than these sundowns. turns out I forgot to turn my LC6i back to the correct gain settings and it was turned almost all the way down sending a very weak signal to my amps. turned it to right under its maximized setting as you are supposed to and readjusted my amp with this.. dayummmm sundown subs are some beasts haha
