    did you set the gain right? wire your subs to the right impedance?

    ok i know what your talkin about but, they are the same color out of the back of the HU, so does it matter which rca goes into them?

    The subwoofer RCA preamp outputs on your HU aren't differentiated by color as to which is for the left channel and which is for the right channel?
    That's odd. What kind of HU are we talking about here?
    But to directly answer your question as this is for sub usage it shouldn't make a difference.
