    It sounds like a bad deck.

    Lets start with the easy stuff. Take a picture of the settings on the amp, and upload it for us to see.

    Tell us where the settings currently are for the deck. Sub out, x-over, bass and trebil.

    If you want to do a little more t/s. Install everything in the car like you normally would, but don't connect the RCAs on the back of the deck.

    Start everything up and make sure the door speakers are playing. Now use your phone adapter (through the rcas connecting where the deck normally would) and see if the subs play.

    If they do, hook the deck back up and check one last time.

    Report back here with everything, and we will tell you what to try next.

    I have found the discrepancy. When I am playing music on the stereo, I am streaming it via bluetooth from my phone, and when the shop tests it, they are using the tuner. When I was testing the rcas from the back of the deck (with a voltmeter, the male plugs didn't want to connect) I was seeing voltage in the range that indicates proper functioning. I then tested the voltage at the output of the amp, and it was pushing about 40 volts. I wiggled the wires and the sub started hitting. (i had switched subs to an old one to see if the speaker was bad, and apparently I exchanged my good sub for a bad one.) I put the alpine sub back in the trunk, turned on the radio, and there was my bass. To test and make sure that my phone hadn't forgotten what bass is, I plugged it into the head units auxiliary port, and the bass was hitting hard. I will go back to the shop on Sunday and show them my findings. I would consider that to be a malfunctioning head unit that should be covered under warranty.
