Default Help With Wiring

Ok I just ran all the wires for adding a sub and line output converter. I wired the convertor up as listed here (http://www.the12volt.com/installbay/...=112757#_index
2005 Nissan Maxima Car Audio Wiring Color Codes
Car Radio Battery Constant 12v+ Wire: Yellow
Car Radio Accessory Switched 12v+ Wire: Violet
Car Radio Ground Wire: Chassis
Car Radio Illumination Wire: Red/White
Car Stereo Dimmer Wire: Red/Yellow
Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire: Green/White
Car Stereo Amp Trigger Wire: Green/White
Car Stereo Amplifier Location: Full range amplifier is mounted under the rear deck. The subwoofer amp is attached to the subwoofer under the rear deck.
Car Audio Front Speakers Size: N/A
Car Audio Front Speakers Location: N/A
Left Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): White
Left Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Black
Right Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Green
Right Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Red
Car Audio Rear Speakers Size: N/A
Car Audio Rear Speakers Location: N/A
Left Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Brown
Left Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Black/Red
Right Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Blue
Right Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Black/White)
But it just doesn't really have any bass over the factory sub. I'm running a alpine m500 amp with a 8" alpine type r dvc 2ohm sub. Also I have the convertor wired up at the factory amp. Thanks for any help or a point in the right direction.

I would wire the converter from the rear speaker terminals (subs) to the amp. Also some converters are adjustable and they are usually sold turned down. Pic of the converter?

It should be pounding. Try turning the gain on the amp all the way up? Does this help? Do you have a bass knob?

Oh I just re-read your post. You have to hook up the converter to the rear speakers...

Make sure to get a bass knob, this will be the only way to control it.

On the convertor tie the two neg wires together and tie the two pos wires together then tap them to one of the deck speaker then plug the rca plugs to the amp
