I have a few questions...any answers are appreciated. First let me provide some information.
I have a MM2124 sub and a Kenwood KAC7201 amp installed in the trunk of a Nissan SE-R. I just bought the sub and installed it in the box I already had so I could use it until I build a new one to specs (0.88cu/ft sealed) The box I put it in is 1.25 cu/ft sealed and it sounds really good (surprisingly) In the 1.25 box, it seems to be really loud and clear when reproducing high and low bass, but what I lack is the quick "punchiness" in most rock/metal music. It just doesn't seem really accurate in reproduction of quick short bass...(like someone going crazy on a double bass drum in a metal song) My questions are:
1. Will I lose the perfect sounding low and extended bass quality when dropping from a 1.25 cu/ft box to a 0.88 box?
2. Is my amp (rated at 460 x 1 @ 4ohms bridged mono) too much or too little power for the sub? (Do I run the risk of damaging the sub with it?)
3. Do I run the risk of damaging the sub while using it in the 1.25 cu/ft sealed box?
4. Could I use poly-fill to compensate for the oversized box at all? (I may be way off here.)
Again, I really appreciate any answers and/or opinions and I hope I gave enough info and asked reasonable questions. Thanks.
