    the crossover sets your frequency at which your subs play...the smaller the number, the lower the frequency...your amp is probably set at too high of a cross over, or maybe you have a low pass filter which you need to activate.

    How would i activate the low pass filter or does that differ on each amp?

    could you list what you are using, amp mids,.....
    that should make it a little easier for us to help .

    and my guess on the sub is that the sub amp is crossed too high on the bottom end to allow the sub to sing like it wants to.
