def need more power! and I looked around and couldn't find a recommended size for these woofers, but other users with the same sub had good outcome in a .7/.8 ft cu enclosure for each sub ( i read in reviews ), I'd try a .8 - 1.2 ft cu box for each sub or 4.8 cu. ft. max for all four , but I'd def try upgrading the amp first and see how it would sound in the boxes they're already in

seems decent.. yeah for sure, do the 40hz test tone when you set it, sonicelectronix has a video on setting subwoofer amps it's pretty helpful... those subs will be happy with that amp tho no doubt

Well the guy is ignoring me now.. but I've decided to build a new enclosure for the four subs the space I have availablr is 11" high, 34" wide , and up to 24" deep.. not sure how big I should actually build the box to give the subs the proper air for them being a little underpowered as well but I'll prob build the box to proper specs since I'll be giving them more power soon
