    If you're subs are wired, and working (vibrating, or moving in and out) and you can't hear them when you turn it up, you probably have phase cancelation.
    Make sure the subs (if you have more than one) are wired the same with regards to neg and pos wires and terminals.
    After that, experiment with running them "in phase" or "out of phase" with the upper range speakers (do that by reversing the polarity of the subs.

    how many subs are you running and whats the wattage on your amp.. i'm betting you don't have enough power at the high end. i used to have an e series.. that **** is old lol. now i have a JL w6.. much better..with a 500w amp

    Well if you have 2 subs, you shouldn't be runing a mono amp for one. You need to make sure the amp you get can push enough power for the speakers otherwise it will just turn off because it's trying to hard to put out the power.
