New here with questions.

Good day all, need some advice. Just purchased a dual non ported 10in sub enclosure for my 2014 crew cab ram with cadence s1w10-d2 dvc2ohm subs. Now when music hits really low bass the subs dont sound that great as they do when it hits somewhat higher bass if that makes sense. I don't know the box dimensions, but can only assume the box is too small for the subs. I have come across some info on filling the box with polyfill to help out with that, and if true how much??????
Thank u all.

A good start would be to figure out internal dimensions for the enclosure you have, compare against manufacturer's spec:

Polyfill will improve things if the enclosure is on the "slightly small" side, but won't fix a box that is extremely small. Cadence recommends ported for that sub, so sealed output will be a fair bit less.

I'd guess your enclosure is a little small for those subs, so experimenting with polyfil is a good idea. If that doesn't cut it, you may have to look at subs better suited to the enclosure and maybe a more powerful amp.

1 pound of polyfil per cuft seems to work the best.

Sound deadening or properly porting the box will help.

Porting a box that we suspect is already too small sealed will help how????

ckeeler11 is a jewel in the roughckeeler11 is a jewel in the roughckeeler11 is a jewel in the roughckeeler11 is a jewel in the rough



looks like the volume will be okay I would be leary of the port. first off its rear facing and you will need to make sure that it is not obstructed in any way. Also what is the port area and tuning?
