Amplifier output frequencies in stock e46 10 speaker system?

Been searching for ever! But looking for the tech specifics on what frequencies are sent to each driver in the system from the stock amplifier. Any leads to the answer? Replaced front 6.5 with kicker ds65's and don't seem to carry low very well. The kicker 6.5 subs in rear work great off of factory amp.

I can't say what the frequencies are out of the factory amp but I think that the reason that you are hearing better low response out of your rears is because of where they are mounted. The rears have more of a "box" enclosure where as the fronts have an infinite baffle. Try swapping the fronts and rears and see if you get the same results, then you would know for sure whether it is the x-over point of the amp or the enclosure.

I cut the bottoms out of the rear cups. Kicker subs using IB. Backs sound great for 6.5's.
