Audio Signal question (from radio to amp)

I have a amp and speakers running off a factory radio (Mazda 6 Bose setup). I got 2 - 10" JLW0's from my Mustang and put them in the Mazda had them installed a while back and it sounds like there is half the bass. Have not taken it back to the shop yet but I know they are going to tell me I need to buy something bigger for better sound but it sounded great in the Mustang. I got a new 400 watt amp because my last one lost a channel (300w Audiobahn) so what gives? Could it be the Factory radio? I had a Alpine in the Mustang so I guess it put out a better signal to the amp. Any Ideas?

And when I say signal I mean the Red and White wires that provide the sound to the amp.

you may need a different line level adapter.

the PAC sni-35 is an adjustable piece, that will let you get ~1v from your current speaker lines.

be sure that whoever installed the line converter got the signal from behind one of the speakers and not behind the radio. a factory bose radio already puts out low level, so if he got the signal there it is gonna kill your bass. by the way im new here. and i am an installer. anyone else work at car audio places? where? hello everyone

preston is still open aswell, and Mike from CISG bought the lewisville store.

Custom will be gone in 1 year, totally.

it's a shame, a once dominant company in this market, that let itself go because of greedy ownership.

25 years in the metro, and they'll be gone before 2 years of new ownership.
