Installed Subwoofer and AMP (CAR is SLOW NOW)

Hey guys,
I am going to post this in the ICE section as well. I own a 2000 328i. I recently hooked up my subwoofers and an Amp to my car. The sound is great. However, now my car feels super sluggish. My miles per gallon has gone down sooooo much. I usuallly average around 16.8 City and now I am getting around 12.9-13 miles per gallon.
It has been a long time since I have had a sub in my car. Is this normal? Is it the weight of the speakers that is taking my MPG way up? What could explain the sluggish acceleration? I have tried searching. Perhaps my parameters just sucked. But if anyone can help a fellow fanatic out, I would be greatly appreciative.
