i want my system to hit when the doors are closed and want it to hit hard. !45db range. has anyone else had this problem of the doors having to be open for the subs to hit hard? thanks in advance...
what kind of amp, and is it bridged

I got a kicker 750 and the box fabricated from kicker with the L7 10". Model number TS10L7, they go for a good price on ebay from a wholesaler. I had a sealed 8" L7 before, but the ported 10 blows it away, I recommend that setup....but you will lose the possibility of anyone sitting in the back....The windows down deal will happen with any sub in our trucks, cause you are basically sitting next to another 'port'. But that box still puts a good bass out windows up, but much harder windows down for sure.

just wanted to let everyone know that i finished my new fiberglass ported box and it hits louder and better than i expected. i honestly cant drive with the bass up because it messes with me and would crash. this is my first ported box and i have built a couple sealed boxes, and anyone that likes sealed boxes better is insane. ported all the way, for sq and spl. thanks a ton for all the input everyone it really helped me. ill post pics soon.
