Same speakers "pounded" harder with the old receiver versus the new one?

Take a good look at your speaker wires. Make SURE there is a good way to tell the difference between the two conductors in each pair (one gold, one silver OR one insulator smooth and the other insulator ribbed, whatever). THEN be DANG sure you are consistent in the wiring with whatever you pick (if you choose silver for (+), then make sure you have everything wired with silver ALWAYS (+). This should eliminate the possibility of the drivers in the bass module "fighting" each other. If there is chance that you or somebody else has taken the bass module(s) apart, make sure the wires inside the module are consistent to the drivers as well.

You may also be getting a null spot where you sit between the two modules (but I'm guessing they are in the same places they used to be).

It may be helpful to disconnect the satellite speakers and place the two bass modules close together and turn up the bass. Choose one module and REVERSE the polarity of the wires on both r and l channel and compare the difference. One way or the other will sound noticeably more "bass ey". Whichever way that is, use it.

As far as separate powered subs, check out:

That last picture looks like a servo driven sub. There was a club here in daytona FL that used them.. They can hit HARD!!!!... We even put a smaller version into a car once... Damn tht thing was loud.

Thanks all for your suggestions.......I will be spending the next few days checking out all your ideas.

I have double checked all my wiring and have confirmed that everything is wired correctly.......I didn't move the speakers, I only replaced the receiver and have reviewed my connections to make sure they are right.

I do think a powered sub is the way to go, now I just have to decide which one.

Bigyellowcat,
I like your idea for a subwoofer, but I see a few problems as it would pertain to my situation:
1. I don't have room for a generator to run it.
2. My insurance policy would probably pay for replacing my windows only once.
3. And although I like the style, my wife probably wouldn't like the blond speaker stand.

Doesn't that blonde resemble the one that an Apache owner gave us some glances of a while back?

Can't remember his screen name...
