Okay i have a rockford fosgate t2d415 hooked up to a t1500-1 at 2 puma and want to tune the box to around 29 Hz should i still use the infrasonic on the amplifier or no? And is it okay to build the ported box bigger than suggested in the manual?( manual says 4 cu. Ft but I want to go 5 cu. Ft if it will give me more air movement. My goal is to do a hairtrick with one t2)

Well you should wire at 2ohm and not 2 pumas, that could get dangerous.

Acoustical energy is free. Electrical energy is not

No, RF Power amps are preset to 28Hz SSF. If your tuning to 29Hz you will completely defeat the purpose of tuning that low. ALso general rule is to set a subsonic filter either 3-5Hz below tuning, so I would say try to tune to 31-32Hz with those subs if you would like to use the SSF

Turned mine up today at a light, guy next to me his steering wheel started moving and he looked over at me like I was a magician lol.

fuck the plating. look at what the main metal used is. you could buy unicorn blood plated terminals but if its just covering up dog shit, whats the point

I'll admit, half way through sanding that fiberglass in the rain and cold while I was all itchy I was definitely starting to question why i was doing this haha

theres no such thing as too expensive when it comes to upgrades like that, because imo if you are gonna spend to upgrade then do it correctly rather then be a cheap ass ricer

Bigger box - less power.
Smaller box - more power.

Cant exactly remember why, but that's one thing to remember.

Bigger boxes are usually used when you are putting under RMS to the subwoofers and/or tuning low. The bigger airspace allows the subs to handle the lower power with better efficiency and handle the lows better also.
