There are 2 simple things you can do to make your subs hit harder. First get rid of that BOSS amp and get a better quality amplifier. Second thing you can do is Dynamat the area where the subs are located. This will eliminate outside noise and rattles so you can hear and feel more of the BASS from your subs. I hope this helps.

third thing is get rid of the audioblah subs and get good subs, too.
better amp, better subs.

try two Adire Shiva 12" subs ($125 each) of Tempest 15" subs. (not sure of price)

then go with a JBL BP1200.1 amp, or Kicker KX1200.1
that'd be 600wRMS per sub
