D.U.B, Pioneer, or Sony Explode

As of right now i have Pioneer 4x6's in the doors, stock rear speakers, and in the trunk i have 2 12'' D.U.B powered by a 400 watt D.U.B amp

well i think my amp must have lost power or something.

the subs still rumble with very low bass but when i change the sw level on my HU it does absolutly nothing. they dont hit hard anymore.

I checked all wires, fuses and everything is good just not hitting hard anymore

so I am going to do a whole new audio set up so my question is what should i get

another set of D.U.B
a set of 10'' subs, and get some 6x9 for rear Pioneers
or a set of 4x6, 10'' subs, and 6x9 Sony Explodes

also thinking about getting a small amp to power the rear speakers

so any suggestiong are welcome

last thing to check, take sub out of box and make sure connections from sub to the connector inside the box are intact.

If you replace your rear stocks, you'll lose that bass unless you find similar three ways. I just left mine in.

I ripped out all of the speaker wiring and replaced it with raptor wiring. My front's are two Polk 4x6's and I've got a 500 Watt Kenwood Amp that's powering a 12'' Kenwood, I've since replaced it with a RF, but I can't really tell a difference.

So if it were me, I would suggest to you to get new fronts, and not worry about replacing the rears and powering them with a seperate amp. I would also get the two 10" subs. Just make sure you get a decent brand. I hate Sony and Pioneer. And for the love of God, don't buy a roadmaster or any other Wal-Mart brand.

Just my opinion, what I would do.

why not try a bigger amp, 400 watts for 2 12" subs seems low to me

as far as replace the rears with new one and getting a small amp, i think this is dumb just get a 4 channel and get new 6x9s and power all four of them puppies, you can tweak them much better than with the HU

Seems like your bass needs some immediate attention. spend some loot and be prepared to start breaking interior parts. use the dubs as a refrigerator magnet to get your moneys worth. and down the road u way be able to use the amp for your rears? sorry for cell phone post. cant really see the quarters flex like they are.
