I would try lowering the bass control a bit below center and then boosting 100 in the EQ a couple clicks above center.
Thanks for that, I will try the tweaks.

Failing that, would I be better off re fitting the original premium mids and fitting standalone subs somewhere else?

I am not looking for ultimate deep bass, just a bit better than standard. I know of your 12" box for the rear, but that's not for me. I am looking for something small and compact that isn't too heavy and looks oem or is hidden somewhere.

Having bought the 4 channel amp, I would prefer to buy 2 small subs instead of one which would need a new one channel amp.
