I have 2 audio diesel 12' but have only had one put in a single ported box for like 3 months. and i have had the other one brand new still sitting in the box never used. Well right now i just tried bridging it and put it in another sealed box and put the brand new 12' in my ported box and the used one in a sealed box but they dont seem to be hitting? i thought it would be probally cause im trying to run them both of a 500 watt amp so its taking to much juice. so i took the sealed box out but the new sub in the ported doesnt seem to be hitting good.


could it be cause i put a new sub in that it wont be hitting as hard as the old one? like the old sub in the ported hit hella good. but now the brand new sub isnt hitting as hard as the old sub in ported?


HELLP!

Isnt there something if you dont wire them both up the same way or if they are different distances apart from you the resonant frequencies distort each other - i might be talking bollox here :p

I was being a smart @ss. It's 12" (inch) not 12' (foot)

It sounds like you might have tried to pull too much power from your amp. Maybe you damaged it....IDK

well he is working with a hatchback, i have two twelves in my 09 sedan. what type of amp are you using? is the sub not hitting at all or is it just very very low? also are you using rcas or are you tied into the speakers with a high pass filter if your amp has it. if so are both the left and right lines connected? have you tried to crossover on the opposite channel? have you tried to run without being crossed over? are your subs dual voice coil?are both coils hooked up? did you change any settings on your deck or amp such as lpf, hpf, or loud features. there are many things that could be causing this problem. all the way from your amp and sub to the deck. so just a couple things to recheck. 500 hundred watts isnt going to push 2 subs the highest they can go but it should push them enough to hit decently. only thing is your amp may shut off if volume is to loud to keep from overloading. let me know once you check these things and if you dont find the problem i can give you some more ideas.

yea check that stuff out for sure and double check everything even if its the simplest. the most frustrating problems are usually corrected by the simplest fixes

If not you might have popped a fuse or blown your amp. I learned that the hard way too. I blew my brand new $1000 JLAudio D Mono 1000w amp like a week after I bought it. The bad thing is I had the correct fuse in and the amp still blew when I was hooking up the sub. It's all good though JL Audio fixed it for free and lesson learned.

Cause I had a $5000 system in my eclipse and w/o my sub hitting the drive I had to make from Ft. Riley, KS to Dallas sucked balls.

I was unplugging my spkr wires to make room for my bags when I hear "zzzztt POP" Then smoke. I was pissed.
