Help, i dont have the power.

I just built a Sonosub with a Dayton 12 in driver and Bash 300 W amp. I hooked it up today but something is wrong. It doesnt seem to be getting much power even with the volume on the amp maxed out. I can feel the sub moving. Does anyone know what I may have done wrong? Wrong enclosure size maybe?

You're gonna have to be a bit more specific. Which Dayton 12"? Dual voice-coil? Have you tested the driver outside the subwoofer enclosure? Have you tested the amp with another driver?

Can you give us a little more info?

Hi guys,

I posted to soon. I found the problem. My reciever (sherwood newcastle 771) has a bad sub preout. I knew I should have gone with the NAD. Thanks.

The same happened to me recently,

If you have old cassete deck with monitor function you can cheaply amplify the signal as I did.

regards, ;)
