Default Reccomendations on subs and an amp... 04 F-150

Hey everyone I'm semi new here.. Well anyways I currently have two w3v310s under my rear seat in my 04 super crew f150 powered by an alpine m1000 in a sealed fox box. It has 6 1/8 mounting depth and .65 per side. I'm just really not happy with the performance of these subs. I've hooked the amp up to a friends p2s for a min and they way out played these. These sound good on certain songs but on others they just won't hit the notes like I want. I know a Cvx will drop in But they need .8 of space.. What's a sub I could replace these with that would out play these? I mean they barely shake my rear view mirror.. Thanks!

W3's are not a bad sub at all honestly. A few things can be happening here. You could be wired at a higher ohm load than your friends' subs. Thus getting less power from your amp. A compact sealed enclosure usually doesn't yield a lot of output. It sucks but they are more for having a little low end to your music. Not mind blowing bass. CVX's are better for ported enclosures so I wouldn't suggest throwing them in that small sealed enclosure. W3's are just a great example of a sealed enclosure optimized sub. There's no way to get any more air space under your seat? Do you have passengers riding frequently in the back? I've worked on a few F150s both newer body style an 05 i thin and a 2002 older round body style. and neither had much room under the rear seat

I've done the whole build a custom enclosure for under the rear seat of trucks and they never quite perform like you want. But for that little of airspace per chamber you could get a solid 8 inch sub per side and port each side correctly and you will more than likely see more output. I don't like even suggesting altering an enclosure like this since it's usually easier to start from scratch but it's up to you I suppose.

I've checked the ohms. It's wired down to 2 ohms. Each is getting 500 rms. I'll probably keep the w3s was just wondering if anyone else has experienced anything like this. Or what I should do on my head unit to maybe tune it. I have a pioneer p4300dvd.

I was just kinda shocked that they barely shook the rear view.

whats your gain set at? and the rest of your settings for that matter? and all of your connections? have a good ground for the amp? all of these can add up to a big difference

I sanded the paint off the bottom rear floor/support and self tapped the 4 gauge there. Gain is a little under max. Lpf is around 75-80. Bass boost is 0. I heard to never turn it up. All connections are done right.. Signal is opposite side of power, etc. My old p2 ran off an Mrp m450 bumped almost As hard as these too.

I feel your pain man. I went thru several expensive setups before I finally made some drastic changes. Had factory 8" sub..then added a fosgate "saleen" 10" sub setup. Then had that and the factory 8....then 2 fosgate 10s under the seat...then 2 kicker L7 10s with a seat lift kit and custom box...then said f-it and chopped my seats up. Did pretty well after that, now finally a blow through

It seems like its never enough. I'm sure your newest setup would suit me though. Lol I just didn't know if they're was like a "tuning" process I should be going through, or If that wouldn't gain me any spl.. I dont know I built it as an sq system but it just didn't have what I wanted there I guess.
