I hate to double post this but I accidentally posted in the wrong section first.

I have an Alpine Type E 12" Sub, and I am running it with a Kicker DX-350 Amp. The amp I have had for a while and had it hooked up to 2 RF Punch 10"s in my Jeep,and it hit pretty good for a small amp. I decided to build a box in the boat and put a new 12 in it.

When I hooked the amp up and got everything in place, I powered it up but had no bass. I fiddled, and tried everything in my power to get that speaker to blast but nothing. I get some sound out of it but barely enough to tell it is moving, only by touching it can you tell it is moving. I have he gain up and the bass up on my deck and still cant get it to put any true sub bass out.

What do I do???? The sub is new, the headunit is new, how do I test an amp to see if it is good, and how would I go about fixing it?

Could I still get sound out of the sub if my amp was blown? and when I turn my remote gain down, there is less sound coming from it, so that part has to be working.

How good is your ground? The amp can only use as much juice as it can get out. I had that problem with an amp in my car once. Just an idea..

Jumper the turn on lead from the power and plug an Ipod into it. If it plays it's before the amp.
