Well I mean they hit anywhere from 20-50 honestly but I love bass so I usually run around 38-41 so I can get good bass since the subs face into the trunk. Soon I am going to build an "in" facing box.
And when I got the car it had some old Clarion stereo installed with RCA outputs with cords on them, so obviously the previous owner had subs though I only found evidence of a single amp. I replaced that Clarion with a newer Clarion with aux input on the front for my phone. I wired it in with the old power wire on the battery, two reliable grounds(one on each amp since I have two but I don't think I've specified that yet) and the ground/rca cords from the HU. I believe the subs are slightly quieter than they were in the 2012 with the stock HU. Could it be that they are directly plugged into the HU, since in the 2012 I had to splice in a converter to the rear speaker wires under the dash? Thanks for the reply by the way.
Also my buddy said its possible that the door speakers are blown since they barely get any sound out. I'm gonna see about checking them out tomorrow.
