hi pplz i got a 4 cahnel amplifier and its hooked up to my factory toyota camry 2001 head unit and everytime i turn it up more than half way i dont feel that bass that i would get wen the volume is up one fourth why is it like that? is it because it is a cheap deck or becasue the subwoofer cant handle the power from the amp but if that would have been the problem the speaker would have started to blow rite?

hard to say without hearing it and seeing the system, but it sounds like perhaps the sub or amp is maxing out, or perhaps amp gain is set a bit too high.
it may just be the factory head unit and the use of an LOC instead of real pre-outs too.
just very hard to guess at like this.

yes my gains are all the way up but then if i turn the gain down then i hardly have bass unless i turn the bass up from the head unit and then when i put the bass up from the headunit then i cant turn the vloume more than half way or it would sound like the speakers are blowing

then the short answer is you need a larger more powerful amplifier.
you're compensating for lack of power by abusing the gain setting.
that'll damage your speakers.
