What size of woofer is it?
is it an 8 or a 4 ohm sub?
dual or single voice coil?
amp specs?
how bout the wiring, explain how you did that, are you using rca directly from the HU or did you have to use line levels in? guage of you amps power lead from the battery, etc also...

how are your gains being set? If you have a multimeter, look online, there's a method of setting your gains with a multimeter to avoid overdriving your amp so it can power your speaker cleanly without distortion...

what kinda box are you using? sealed, ported, or are you doin a free-air setup?

where is your sub located in your car?
