      Heres an idea, I had a problem like this. Check your wiring, make sure that...picture this...each sub has one set of wires. Then connect the wires to the amp ++ - -. I had a problem with I connected the 2 subs to a seperate wire and then ran it to th amp and there was no bass, just garble

      well there is bass... but there might as well be none.. i have to lay over the box.... to play with the amp before i feal anything.... i dont know if its just to much air for these subs to move... or the box is to big.. or the subs just suck... i dont know..

      Yes try what I said to do, I did have the same problem, there was not a lot bass but when I gave each sub its own wire and then combined them at the amp there it was, BASS, just try it.

      If the sub box is to big then you will notice that the subs dont move at all

      If the box is to small then you will notice that the subs have a HUGE excursion, and that they are sucking the air in side the box trying to make some bass, they are moving very much!

      But you might not be able to tell either of these unless you have the subs wired probally.

      How big is the box, if you are able to, try moving the box around, try facing it back to the hatch, leaving just enough room for the subs to move, kind like corner loading it. GOOD LUCK

      I would say check all of the connections pos to pos & neg to neg. also try them out of the box (freeair), then try them one sub then the other, make sure they (and the amp) work and 4ohms, then wire them both sub pos to the amp pos and both sub neg to the amp neg (thus wiring in parallel) and the should bump. Also make sure that the airspace of the box is enough for the subs .
