Default Not as loud as I thought

SHORT SUMMARY OF MY SYSTEM
I recently purchased a brand new Obsidian 15D4 about 3 weeks ago. I have it hooked to a Hifonics 1000.1. I am using 750 watts RMS from the amp at 2ohms. I have a small 2.0 cubic foot sealed box(probably 1.81 after displacment.)I have heard nothing but good reviews about Obsidian but am a little dissappointed by the output.

QUESTION
A buddy of mine has a 3-4 cubic foot ported box that is tuned to 37hertz so i was wondering if I picked up this box would it significantly increase my output. I know that Obsidians are supposed to be tuned low so would it damage the subwoofer at all?

Any input would be greatly appreciated

You would certainly see an improvement in output. It's sealed what did you really expect. And you aren't going to damage a subwoofer with tuning. I saw hands down pick up the ported enclosure.

Its not going to break the sub but it might not like really low notes too much if you play really low songs.
youll probably be surprised by how much louder it is in the ported box.

A ported box is going to be much louder, I personally wouldn't want that high of tuning, really ever.

Looks like I'll pick up that box then. He said it is built with 1 inch MDF, carpeted, and the inside is resin coated. All that for just $50 doesn't sound too bad.

Thanks for the quick input fellas
