  11. SDX10 tips for slam?

    Creative Sound Solutions
    Hi guys. I already have the TRIO12 with 2 PRs in a big 24" box. It can dig pretty deep (20 Hz: 120 dB @ 1 meter). However, I want to feel more impact for 'gunshot type action acenes'. I am looking for a bit more "in-your-chest-slam" which I assume is more mid-bass? I have a hole in my bass...
