Default moderate bass with no gain

So today i decided to throw my stereo back in my truck. So i got everything wired up ready to turn gains untill i felt comfortable with it and at 0 gain im getting pretty loud bass. Doesnt make much sense to me. Anyone ever had this happen?
Amps are rockford 400.4 and Ap3k
Old pioneer deck from 09 and clarion eq
Sub is a D2 CVX
0 and 4 gauge throughout the truck
I do have some shitty soundquest rcas but had these in there before with no problems
Any ideas?

check your rca voltage at the amp, if it is above 5v wou really wont move the gain much anyway, and the cvx don't need much to get loud. Is the sub wired to 1Ohms. ?

yes its wired to 1 ohm on one channel of the amp.
amp gain is round about 1/4 of the way up. Just seems strange as I had the exact setup in the truck before except subs were 2 RE 10s and never had any problems

An audiopipe 3k is a mono amp. That 1ohm load is sending each internal strapped amp .5 each, so im sure it wouldnt take a lot of gian to get a single cvx moving.

The sub is only on one channel!! Ap3k has 2 just wondering about the gain and the bass only seems "fuzzy" at low volume. When i crank it up cant hear it at all. Also tryed to hook the amp straight to the headunit without the clarion eq and it does the same thing. The fuzzy sound worries me more than the gain issue at this point.

of course the sub is only on 1 channel. that is all there is on a MONO amp. there may be 2 pos and 2 neg speaker outs but they are all 1 channel.
