Default pioneer 4100nex lows suck

I finally installed my new deck and got all the bugs fixed but my lower frequencies on my sub aren't as good as when I had a lc8 and my oem stereo.
This version of pioneer stereos don't have a loudness feature and I have the crossover for my sub off. On my amp they are at 25hz and 100hz. I have a noise filter for the engine noise my sub had but it sounded the same without the filter.
Same settings on the amp as when I had my oem stereo.
Do you guys have any suggestions?

didnt turn the subwoofer level up on the HU settings? You should "retune" the amp (make sure the level on the amp is where it should be), the new hu may not be putting out the same preamp voltage to the sub amplifier as your former hu setup.
do you have a multimeter to measure rca voltage?

Yes I have a few multimeters but I haven't checked that. I'll try a sinewave to see what frequency it picks up on and report back.
The mid to higher frequencies play fine at lower volume. It's just the lower ones that are giving me a problem.
This radio have 4v outputs

I've had a lot of pioneer head units, deh-p7800mp and 9400 right now and deh-p680mp premier before these, point is, in the audio settings, there is "Sub1", "Sub2" Subwoofer 1 is phase control and sub on, off control, sub 2 is the sub crossover settings and sub level. I'm not positive because I've never owned a pioneer in dash video, but I've messed with them in stores, but turn on the crossover and choose a cut off frequency, then choose how many db to boost the sub level. There is also a bass boost option but it will boost the bass to your components also so make sure you set your high pass frequency cut off also. Also, there is a SLA option, "source level adjustment", tuner, cd, iPod, Bluetooth. Sound retriever is for poor quality down loads but careful, you could send a clipped signal and fry some speakers with that. The 13 band eq that receiver comes with gives you a lot of adjustment. It's easiest to try " super bass" or
"Powerful" in the preset eq provided by pioneer and adjust each frequency from there. It will stay in "custom 1" until you change it.
Sorry so long winded but it takes some experimenting to get it to sound how you like it with pioneer. Once you figure it out, you'll probably love it.

You just gotta reset your gains completely and properly. Your head unit needs to be around 90% of max volume and set your sub level to max to get proper pre-out. Use a proper test tone for your music choice. If you listen to regular hip hop, use a -5 db test tone to set the gain. If you listen to bass enhanced music, use a -2 to 0 db test tone. Make sure your subsonic filter on the amp isnt too high as well, turn off low pass filter on the amp(set it wide) and use the head unit's low pass filter at 80 hz. If you dont know where the sub level is, go to speaker level adjustments and its in that section.
