    Our 2020 has the factory sub and I think it sounds good, or good enough for me anyways. Have you looked at your amp settings to see what they are yet?

    Ya I feel like I will be happy with it once it is working properly but right now it isn't. I have even watched Hak's video of the sound system on a Max and my sub doesn't move like that one at all.

    Ya I got in there and took a look and everything seems to be correct. Not sure if I am missing a setting in the head unit or what that is why I figured I will let the professionals get it tuned.

    If the amp gain looks good and the sub is OK, a possibility would be that the Sub Max Volume setting in the Fusion HU is set close to zero...

    There are a couple other amp settings that will impact the woofers performance. Same with the source signal. There are setting beyond the woofer volume level.

    Ya I feel like I am just missing something, obviously lol. I know the sub volume max is at 80% but other than that I don’t recall all the other settings. Here is what my amp looks like. I even checked which wires were +/- and verified they were hooked correctly at the sub.....




    I have an apt to have it tuned on the 17th so hopefully it will all be good after that. I will be sure to update once I get it back.

    I know what a free-air sub is and they are terrible. Buy a box or build one and it will blow your hair back! That is, as long as it is working properly.

    My gain is slightly higher but those are basically my same amp settings. I cant remember the HU settings. Be interesting to see what they tell you or how it sounds after you take it in.

    The issue with enclosing an infinite-baffle woofer in a small enclosure, is they become a 1-note-wonder IMO. The bandwidth is greatly narrowed due to the added dampening. It may sound or feel like its "hitting harder", but its not reaching as low, as effectively now. For best the results, you'd want a quality mono amp to drive the IB woofer, compared to bridging on a two chnls of a full-range amp.
