    I have not had to chance to check it out now that I am hang over free But last night I drove it and even with the MX turned off and the bass boost set to 0, I think I have it pretty well where I want it to be.

    Most of the time you will not need any boost on the amp, or the HU. Specially Alpine's sucky Media Xpander.

    I use my boost. Since my box is smaller than it should be for my sub, it has trouble in the sub 40 Hz range so I use my amps bass boost which helps until I get a better EQ. Its only 6 db tho so its not too much.

    Well that is because you did not follow the manufacturer's specks :). If you had there would probably be no need for any boost :D.

    You gotta watch the gains with that much boost ;).

    Thats because I dont have .66 ft3 room under that seat! I was lucky to get the .53 that I did. Ive got a good bit of pollyfill in there but, as the old saying goes, there is no replacement for displacement.
