Default Not as loud as I was hoping for..

So I have the system in my sig. It gets pretty loud and shakes things up. I was just expecting more out of the set up. I feel Im not getting all I can out of the equipment. This is all in the trunk of my car and I rarely would put my seats down. IMO I feel is the box that is restricting it. The box is awesome and built with high quality. I just think the port is waaayy too close to the side wall of the trunk..

My current box looks like this..


port is on the left


I was wondering what are your opinions and thoughts on what type of box design would be better.. it can be for 2 or 3 10's.

for 2-10's I was thinking of doing something similar to what Tfade did..




or for the the 3-10's I had this box a while ago on sa10's with pretty good success but it was stolen..



so my question to you guys is what do you think would be best. I would like a low end monster!

Yeah i know all about the port being too close to the side wall or a part of the car...i had a box for my 2 15s that the port was about .5 of an inch away from my back hatch (i drive a jeep) and it reallllllly restricted airflow. i switched up boxes and gained a lot from that. I think the 3 10s box picture you have above would do good in the trunk honestly

The way the trunk is shaped. Ill have to push it all the way back to give the port an inch or 2 more. Then the subs will be very close to the back of the trunk.
