I then bought some 12s HDC3s and I sold them to someone else after being convinced the same thing. I...

    My subs are not hitting as hard as they should.

    I have had a Fosgate t2 15 for a while and it hits pretty good. I finally decided to get an upgrade and bought another t2 15 and hooked it up. It hits with the same power as before. I have a RE audio 3000 watt amp. Is this just a power issue? What is the next step to get more bass.
