Gotcha on the horn cvrossover, THAT does make sense...
On the amp crossover, 120 Hz is not bad, so you could leave it there if you like the way it sounds. Having the bass boost up may be the culprit so turning it down will help.
On the standoffs, you can improvise. Many times we will see a short piece of wood, one that will go from screw hole to screw hole on each end of the amp. Some guys have used short pieces of metal or plastic tube with the screws through them. Small blocks of ABS plastic are sometimes used. The universal theme is that the mounting screws go through whatever the stand-off material is being used. HIt the harwarae aisle of your local home improvement store and see if sometihng catches your eye.
Other will have stand-off suggestions, so take ideas from all and do what makes sense for your applpication.
Let us know how it goes!

Anyone address what the ohm or the sub is or if its a single vc or dual vc? That could be creating part of the problem.
Maybe running it at a 1ohm load?

Phil, sorry I meant the "10 inch sub" he mentioned he is running of the off the same amp. Not the HLCD's

Flex, what woofer? respond to Newty's question, and lets make sure the woofer is not contributing to the issue as well...

If it is a KM10 either 2 or 4 ohm then you should be fine and thats not your problem.

Yeah, KM10 is 4-ohms, so it is not causing problem, as long as it is playing...
Your sub still works, right flex?
