Default This was a fail...

So was askn if there was anything i can do to make my current setup louder. One of the main ones b4 rebuilding a box was to turn it into the cabin and seal it off...so i did just that. Unless you have to be a genius to do this i royally ****ed up. ha. Cut some wood, fit it in there, and it wasn't mean to look nice, just to see if it did make a difference and well ill be damn it did! A bad difference....i don't think it sounds as loud at all....nor do i feel my lows near as much, why is this? Here are pic of what i did, and yes its ugly but trust me...it is sealed off, checked with a flashlight at night to see if i see light... i saw no light. Also didn't know that expanding foam was such a ****n pain to get off your hands....any idea what gets it off?

one of the biggest things you can do to make your stereo suck sealed up on dash is to turn you box around and face it towards you, now you are canceling out instead of being in phase. sorry man

most are tuned higher or drive with windows down alot, higher the note the shorter the wave is, firing backward makes it a longer distance until it reaches your headrest

basically,
the length of a 35hz tone is 32ft long, your car (I hope) isn't 32 ft from you box to your headrest. so it bounces off windshield and goes back 180 out of phase canceling out with the waves coming forward. Making it quieter, this is also why you roll down the windows it gets louder, windows down lets wave mature out side of car and not double back as much so less cancellation.
the only way to get sound from a speaker is to divide the front and rear waves (or make one side reverse through a port or you can totally block it off like in a sealed box) other wise the front and rear being opposite cancel each other out, and your sound goes away.
most people think the sound from the front and rear of cone is the same, it's the same signal but rear is backwards.
