Hi to any one that can help me!
I have2 12'kickers in a bandpass box in my car right now but i feel like it could be pounding harder than it is. Is there any way to hook it up to max out the boom?maybe a different way to splice the wires will work?This is the first system ive hooked up so plzzz help me!

Old thread, but just in case....

You could get an amp with a higher watt output. Look at the RMS rating on your subs, and find an amp that will match it. Make sure not to get one that overpowers them too much, or you'll end up blowing them. An underpowered setup is OK... my subs are underpowered by about 100 watts together, and they still hit just fine. Also, you could look into getting a ported box. They are substantually louder, though you lose a little precision due to their 'boomy' nature.
