    there are two twelve inch woofers(sony explodes) when you refer to bracings what do they look like cos my enclosures, only have a centre partition to seperate the woofers from one another in the box,and all this is kept together with glue and nail not even screws this i can see when the enclosure actually breaks.

How many woofers are there and what size. it sounds like the aren't using any bracing. If you don't have some bracing, the panels can flex and eventually break.

Tralaua soundstream 15in 1000 rms best way to wire subs for loudest sound


Best thing to do is build the right enclosure. Which woofer exactly as you need the Theile/Small parameters to calculate the correct vented enclosure. That will buy you more than any wiring setup. Typically 15 icnh woofers like to see about 5 cubic ft per woofer to really get loud. And it all depends on your vehicle also. Need more input to help out, like what amplifier, whioch woofer specifically, vehicle your putting it into.

What's wrong with my speakers and amp? They sound like ****!!!!


Your woofers are not going to sound very good unless they are in an enclosure (box). Very few woofers are designed as free air.

Bass sounds muddy and volume is minimum.


Hello mercedesman4,

Your setup sounds great. I had to settle for Blaupunkt in my Mercedes.

It sounds like the culprit is your enclosure. It's possible that by tweaking the settings, you could improve the sound somewhat, but having been used to the sound of a sealed enclosure, maybe not. Sealed enclosures tend to produce tighter, more accurate bass and have a flatter frequency response curve. They are also generally the enclosure of choice when looking for a SQ (sound quality) oriented setup.

Ported enclosures will produce louder bass than sealed enclosures, and maybe that's why some audio guys push them. They also allow the speaker to operate more efficiently, so you need less amp power for a given volume. Higher tuning on a ported box will get louder, but at the expense of sound quality. Lower tuning will still get louder than a sealed box, and the sound quality will be better than a box tuned higher, but still not as good as sealed. That's what I meant about tweaking the settings. You may see some improvement by setting the crossover lower, decreasing bass boost, or by turning the subsonic filter on/off. I'm no audiophile, but personally I've never been able to stand the sound of a ported enclosure, however it was tuned. Sealed just sounds better.

Hope this helps.

RCA Sub-Woofer


Did you try making sure the subwoofer is turned on under the set up menu on the Sony Receiver?

Press Set Up, Press the left or right button above the scroll wheel until you get to SW. It should say SW: ON or SW: OFF. If it says SW: OFF, use the Scroll wheel to scroll right until it says SW: ON. Also, make sure you aren't in 2CH mode, try A.F.D or surround sound.

Specs for box


Download the manual for the woofer from the Sony site. It will give you the volume needed for the sub.

If you need help constructing the enclosure, there are several applets on the following page:

First thing is to make sure that the 15" subwoofer's RMS power rating (not peak power rating) is at least 250watts. Also, you have to be sure that the woofer is in the right enclosure. I am guessing that since you didn't post a model number for the subwoofer or the type of box it is in (i.e. - ported or sealed) that you are putting the woofers in too small of a box or too big of a box. Trucks typically don't have much room for woofer enclosures, so many people favor smaller boxes. The incorrect box will affect how the speaker cone moves due to the internal pressure in the box. Too much movement without and the voice coil hits the magnet causing that "popping" sound. reducing the gains on the 250/1 can often help.
