Default Bench press sans pecs

Okay, I mean ... I HAVE pecs .... but what I mean is I did a pretty hefty set of bench press the other day (something like 3x20) at a good weight for max reps (80% of what I usually bench, probably 60% of my true max since I don't really count a weight unless the bar speed is good). My grip was a bit narrow (the same as it is when I do push ups) and while my beck and triceps were sore the next day my pecs felt almost nothing. Am I not engaging them? Should I widen my grip? If I benched a lot I wouldn't stress about the lack of soreness (I don't get sore from squats or deads anymore, usually) but I rarely bench at all. I'm adding it as part of a period of CUBE style training.
