Clean It ?
I don't think that has anything to do with performance
unless you have been mudding, and it's covered in dirt.
Please be more specific, Amp, Speaker (s) and all specs.

You have to understand that the only moving parts in your system are the speakers.
Cep't the CD spinner thingy
Like tires, the more you use them and abuse them, they just plain wear out,

Can i use a 300 watt amp for 2, 800 watt woofers

yes, but you would not get the same performance as you would if you gave them the suggested power. I have found that it is always better to use a more powerful amp than your subs are rated for (as long as it is clean, high quality, low distortion power). I have had the best luck with name brand amps (kicker,rockford fosgate,phoenix gold,etc...). I hope this will be helpful to you.

I have the same sub on the "digital" amp from the same company.

I used the 1.75 ported box from my jl 12w3v3-4 and it sounds great. I am not sure on the correct box size but the box for the 12w3 sounds great. I tried emailing performance and the email was wrong.

Slow on the take off!

Not really my specialty, but I've had a problem like this. The cheapest thing to do is go to the shop and have them clean your throttle body and mass airflow sensor. These things regulate how much gas your engine gets. If either of them are fowled up, it can really mess with idle, throttle, and overall performance. Good luck

Will not play CDs or eject them. Just makes noises like it is trying to change.

You have a problem with dirt lens on the PICKUP unit or the PICK P is maybe dead. First you should open the device and clean the lens with a cotton stick, it should be dipped first in the clean water. Put it on the lens annd gently spin it in circles. After that in five minutes or more try again with the playback.

I have static comming from the right side all speakers,

Normally a "ground" or "earth" problem. Check all ground/earth connections, maybe remove, clean chassis with a bit of 280 grit sandpaper and replace
