Bass sounds horrible in 99 GT
I have a 99 GT with an aftermarket system installed. Since Day one, I have not been able to get the bass to sound good, or even half decent. It is either muddy and distorted, or boomy and annoying. I just want the bass to blend well with the music. I had most of this system in my 94 Camaro Z28, with even thinner wiring, and the bass was perfect.
I have tried two head units...a Pioneer DEH-P8MP, and Eclipse CD8454.
I am running 4 gauge Knukonceptz power up to a 150 amp ANL fuse at the battery, and ground at the metal rear seat-back frame. Then power/ground is routed through two unfused Knukonceptz distribution blocks out to 8 gauge Knukonceptz power/ground to the amps.
RCA's are Knukonceptz Karma to the Highs amp, and Stinger Pro to the Bass amp.
Amplifiers are Elemental Designs Nine.2 to the highs, and Viper D600.1 to the subs.
I have tried two different subs. A pair of Elemental Designs 11kv2's(10") wired for 1 ohm. and three JL Audio 10W0-12's in a MTX box.
If the trunk is to blame, what can I do to get more of the bass into the car, and to clean it up. If not, what could the major problem be with my system?
