could be the size box, each sub has a certian requirment for the amount of space it needs to meet its spec's to get the full use out of it. Also the amplifier might not be pushing out the correct "rms" for the sub. meaning the sub can handle more power. I have been to competitions with my cousin, and saw a guy with a single 12" Rf sub hitting 142dbs. that was crazy.

That could be it, ported boxes are better for a louder on going sound and sealed are good for tight sounding bass. I mite want to try to build a box for the spec's of that sub? Me I would get a bigger box that is ported. what size sub is it btw?

Id try a bigger ported box. Im running 2 12" on a ported bandpass box. But Dont go with band pass. Im in the processes of changing out to 1 15" in a poted box built to specs. bigger ported box. www.rockfordfosgate.com. look up your sub and see what the box demensions specs are fot that sub. should be there.
