Guys I really need help with this. Please refrain from flaming me as I've tried to read up as much as I can, but, there is no one else that seems to have this problem.
Here's my situation:
I've replaced my stock system with all aftermarket parts a few years back and since then, I've never had much bass coming from the front speakers.
My stock system on the other hand, had a lot of bass coming out of the speakers THEMSELVES. I could feel the bass come out of the front and rear speakers and it sounded great. The only problem was I could only put the volume so high before they became distorted which is why I decided to just replace the entire system.
My front drivers are Alpine Type-X 5.25" components so I know they are capable of producing some decent bass. Yet, when I listen to songs, especially hip-hop or rock, the music sounds somewhat flat. I can put my hand on the grill and barely feel the bass vibrations that I got from my stock system.
My question is:
What could be the possible problems and what can I do to improve the bass to make it sound more like my stock system? I'm sure everything is hooked up right, because I had a pro put it together.
