Subwoofer delay

Ive bought another F-250 and have installed my 2 JL 10's and amp in this one but for some reason, when I start the truck, the amp powers up but I have to turn up the volume on my head unit quite a bit to get the subs to come on. Anyone have any idea why?? Also the nav arrow on my Avic D-3 is acting crazy once I swapped trucks too. Just looking for any ideas.

factory or aftermarket headunit? Does it have a sub output that may be turned down? Did the GAIN on the amp somehow get turned all the way down when you were swapping?

I checked all the connections, all I can think is maybe the remote wire is bad. Its an aftermarket Pionner Avic D-3. No the gain and all my amp settings stayed the same as well as my subwoofer outputs.

the amp would not turn off with a bad remote wire. the remote wire would have nothing to do with the subs. check all the settings on your amp and head unit.

Might be a setting in the stereo when you switched trucks the setting you changed went back to default and now you have to find it again. I know on my stereo there is a gain for the sub you can control how much base you want and adjust it accordingly.
