well first off i measurd mine a lot of different times and it did gain for some reason. I have a 12 volt battery but at the amps it putting out 16 volt due to my alternator, but its factory weird huh. Last night i took it out of my trunk and stuck them in my backseat angling them up, but i was not impressed. plus i noticed the boxes top screws had vibrated a opening on the front all the way across. Thats one thing that has happened alot is screws popping out

To keep the screws in, I suggest putting a little Gorilla Glue in the hole the screw will be in. It has helped me and people I know in the past.
That's my opinion. Take it, leave it, or correct me.

Yea definitely put some glue of some type in the screw holes. I shook the top off of a bandpass box once because the screws worked out of the plexi-glass *laughing*
If it is a custom made box, you may also want to consider running a bead of glue along the seams as well to help keep the wood together, then screwing it together.

Screws alone are not recommended for box building...especially with drywall screws. They can strip out MDF pretty good...always use glue in the seams.

I DO like the gorilla glue as well. It stays nice and rubbery, even after time. I keep a good stock on hand at all times.

i went and had my system reversed turning towards the back of the trunk and the amp plus the battery. the battery measured out alittle over 14. He said they had a bad battery in the meter which threw it off. To my disappointment, oh well. I only hit a 142.0 then my meca cd started skipping cause the cd plyer is sensitive. but I noticed a huge increase overall. 142 for this weather may pit me at a 145 in the summer or better no real way to tell though. the best i have hit so far was 143.4. but the pressure difference was better now then then.
