They are muddy just like you said they dont hit low notes by any means and are not very "tight" but thats my opinion i dont think it will hurt to try!
Sounds like your not very good at building boxes then
I have a very good audiophile ear. Worked in Home audio for 8 years, did car audio installs for 12 years, and love music. The point here isn't to have ground pounding bass. I have a killer system in my CTS. I don't need it here. I just want to get a little better bass from the stock system. Doing this, will do just that. I don't want to spend really any money. The sound is pretty decent, but I know it can be cleared up.
The nice thing is, anything I am going to do, and the things we are discussing here, will at least make it sound better. Will it be a "HOLY SHIT, this is the best system ever" moment? Nope, but it will sound better for $30 and a couple hours time
