    most likely..lol..sony is shit in car products.

    your speakers should be knockin. i mean my boy has 2 MTX and runs a fosgate amp to em, and they knock. so i would imagine the type Rs to hit better

    sounds like install to me.......could be your box, your wiring, your gains, or many other things........i would replace the cd player as soon as i could but you should get some decent bass with a proper install

    I suggest an Eclipse 8443

    I'm pretty sure that has a subwoofer control but I'm not positive.

    i got the Alpine CDA-7894

    its pretty good. 60x4, subwoofer control and all

    all u gotta do is press the volume nob and it brings up the sub control. u can cut them off, raise/lower, etc

    make sure your gain on your amp is up... just use a screwdriver, and screw it so its like in the middle... or till what u think is good

    Check your ohm settings...and your wiring to the subs..make sure there not hitting againts each other...i cant remember if type-r have duel voice coils..that might be a factor...run your subs paralle and bridge the amp.....turn gain up...heheehe dont blow your subs now...


    you need kicker Solo...L7 subs...
