Default weird problem

alright today i put my subs in a sealed box just to see how they would sound. I think it sounds a lot better than my crappy ported box, but before with my ported box my lights wouldnt dim that much now they dim like all hell with the sealed box i dont understand it.

I didnt changed anything on the amp,I checked all the connections and i didnt change anything on my deck. Do you think it could be because the ported box was louder and didnt have to to turn it up as much to get the same effect as with the sealed box.

ha thats why u asked if ya changed the settings lol. if you are turning the volume up more then that would be your prob. your pushing the amp a bit harder than before. ported boxes are more efficiant so they get louder with less power compaired to sealed boxes. time to upgrade that electrical some more mang and should be good to go
