No it wouldnt. The only way that it would give you more bass is if the fibreglass was rattling. What kind of amp are you running??

Upgrade your subs and enclosure.
Build the box so that it performs well in the worst case scenario and, in return, it will reward you at all times.

I'm guessing he has a cheap bandpass enclosure with the plexi in front...

Hey everybody has to start somewhere, my first system was pretty cheap. Save your money kid and listen to Stevdart, upgrade when you can afford it.
There is no such thing as free installation!

Its not about how much you put into it, its about finding great deals. Car audio places going out of business, will sell products as cheap as possible. Craigslist, ebay, and Crutchfield/12 volt for research. My current setup ran me 20$ sub->craigslist 150+shipping amp(compromise)->sonic electronics 150 HU->craigslist, 70 for cabling and misc->hardware stores and 40 for parts to make new box. just gotta get some components now... Anyway it sounds like an expensive setup, and everything new would have run me atleast 1500. Just become a good bargain hunter and know what you want.

Well there is an opposing point of view on this.  While I'm all for a bargain, sometimes you're better off to pay a little more in the beginning.  Buying used, closeout, or bargain site equipment can be cheap and sometimes incredible deals, but there is always the risk of something blowing and now you're up the proverbial creek.  This is an especially bad idea if you're new to the game and have a higher chance of ruining your equipment from improper setup/use etc.  Also there is the chance of buying faulty equipment from dishonest buyers.

With that said there are good deals to be had if you're smart.  I'm also a fan of buying lesser known brands that have proven track records as you won't be paying for the name and often these companies appreciate their smaller customer base and will provide good customer support.  I'm sure there are many people on here that would want to throw in your local shop as well as a good relationship with them can pay off big in the long run.
