Are you sure the polarity is correct on the sub's connectors? This is very important as reversing them will cause the sub to pound inward instead of out. Make sure the wires are thick enough and that the amp's + connector goes to the red(or +) connector on the sub and that the amp is grounded properly to a clean piece of metal on the car's body. This ground wire should also be as short as possible. Also make sure the fine-tuning for the bass level on the amp is adjusted correctly and that the sub's enclosure is the correct specification ie. Ported or sealed, right size, etc.

try reconnecting your rca's from the deck to the amp when finished wire one speaker positive to positive on left channel and negative to negative on right channel then connect the 1st subwoofer. if all power and sound is fine and working turn off power to amp and connect negative terminal of 1st sub to positive on 2nd sub and positive from first sub to negative on second crossing the wires runs the speakers in series another way to try is parralel the speakers wiring by connecting positive left channel output of amp to positive on 1st sub same with the negative then splice positive to positive on second sub and same with negative.

Appreciate again the "Ask Me".
Appreciate the "FixYa" rating you have given me here. A request if I may, my being able to assist you is largely dependent on my standing (rating and raking) on the site. Since the Panasonic has been successfully dealt with, perhaps you can re-evaluate and rate the following as you see them fit:
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

SOURCE: No sound..amp has power to it
After three days of torture, I was going to rip it out, until I decided to make a fresh ground. I drilled a small pilot hole and got a brand new self tapping screw...voila!!! Works like a charm.
