could be a lot of things but its not the speaker wire size.
re-check your wiring, amp settings, etc.

ok this is what if figured out from the other board. my wireing is right. at the end i will show u a diagram of how my wireing is. ive played with all of my amp settings. what is happening is that when my hu is at half power everything sounds AWESOME perfect amount of bass and it blends good with my interior speakers. but whe i go any higer than that my car speakers way over power my sub. i can bearly hear it..and the sub is rated for what my amp can do so its not distoritng at all. and ive listined and confirmed that. it seems like my subs arnt working hard at all. there is bearly any air coming out of the porting, and the subs ant even moving back and fouth an inch! i dont think that 80 watts should over power and 800 watt sub. please help me.

sorry to say those subs are not rated at 800 watts. Thats a peak power rating. The reason why the subs cant keep up with the interior speakers is because at 1/2 hu volume they are at full excursion and when u turn it up past that they start clipping and dont get ne louder. The excursion on those subs is probally around 4mm one way.
