Got new Alpine deck, low bass from sub...HELP

The free Sony deck I had in my car for the last few years inevitably died.

I got a new Alpine CDA9884. Problem is, the bass comming out of the sub is about 1/2 what it used to be.

Before, with the Sony, I could set the sub volume on the deck and the amp to about half to match the bass to the speakers. If I felt like it, I could turn up the sub volume and loudness on the deck and shake the car to pieces. If I also turned up the volume control on the amp, I could get the sub to produce so much bass it would distort like crazy.

Now, with the Alpine, i've had to turn loudness on, and set the sub volume on the deck and the amp to maximum to match the bass to the speakers. This means I cannot turn the bass any higher, and it's hardly close to the bass potential I once had.

I've rechecked the wiring and the grounds multiple times, I don't know what else I could do. Is this just the way Alpines are?

Thx in advance.
