I have built two DO boxes with Dayton HO 18's like Gorillas. I only have one box hooked up right now to the left channel of a CV5000, power is all the way up. Haven't really had much time to experiment, but the brief moment i got, i popped in LOTR and played an explosion scene. One of the subs played flawlessly, but the other sub is bottoming out in the loudest parts of the explosion. Why would one sub play great, but the other not so great when they are receiving the same signal/power, and in the same box? Or could I have received a bad sub? The right channel is not connected yet, so i'm just gonna take a stab and guess that the amp is providing extra power (on top of the 1250W @ 2 ohms) to the pair, and that when i hook up the second box, it should distribute power evenly and it may not bottom out again. i really have no idea though. any thoughts or input is appreciated...
