Default Trying to get the best sound!

okay so i got two 12" subwoofers and they pound but the only problem is that they dont get the best sound in my car because my 2000 bonneville is so long so its hard for the sound to get to the front.

so what i want to know is, is there anyway i can get better sound for my subwoofers? please someone help me!

It is very tough to get the type of boom that some people want in our cars because of the body style, shape, curves, and size. Not to mention the back seat doesnt fold down. The best advice that I can give you is at the least, sound deaden the entire car. I know that it may be unefficient financially but it would help a ton! at the least, do the trunk. I also highly recommend making a box that is driver specific to the manufacturers specs. Ported boxes offer a higher amount of output than a sealed one but a sealed one is more "musically accurate". There is a company called Audio enhancers that make ported boxes speciffically for certain subs. You should check out their website to see if they have one for your sub. On the deep end, I would say that you would have a better sub output with a high powered sub like a DC sound lab level 4 15 instead of for example two infinity kappa 12'*. Now this is not to say that the infinity subs wont sound good because I think with the right box, they would. I am just saying that I higher quality sub in the right box with the right amp could potentially offer you a higher output. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you have anymore questions

yes, the higher end subs will give you better bass. you can also fold the center console in the seats down, and take out that little door, that makes mine louder, you can unbolt the back seat, and take it out...ive done that as well and had the best results there. you just have to mess with some different ideas in the car, whether it be something i just mentioned, something black friday mentioned, or something you can think of. ported is the way to go for louder bass
