Default Sony xm1s 290rms and JL W3v3 12inch sealed, Passat 2012

Hi, This would be my 1st sub and amp in car

Is there anything wrong with my setup or i am asking for too much bass on low budget 290rms?
Does trunk in sedan block a lot of bass ?
Do i need to move my sub position ?
is .75 inch layer of fibreglas on all sides of enclosure and .25 inch on top of it synthetic wool(came with enclosure) too much damping ?

It sounds really nice and i love it. Now the sub is at the back of the sedan in trunk and I was expecting a little more bass, a little more boom. Infact i have a friend who had kicker 250rms amp with Jl 10 inch W1 and he gets more boomy bass than my 12 inch, this could also be because he has 6inch 40rms Jl coax in doors or because he has an SUV and bass is not blocked by trunk space...

any ideas
