    i had all the positives running back to the amp . and all the negatives from subs to amp (the vibe/bridged) worked fine for a few weeks then it just didnt switch on one day

    second amp legacy . was told to run them in series amp+ - + - + - amp which again worked for a few days this time and the amp just fizzled and poped when i was showing off . utter fail

    and these sony amps im just confused about . i was told u cant bridge them so again a ran subs in series back to one channel on the amp and it barly moves the sub again aft a day or so it just packed in ...

    i do have a split charge system in the van which i have ruled out.

    It sounds like your running cheap amps at around 1ohm so yea they aren't going to last long also I'm pretty sure those are all ab class amps.

    I don't know what class they are but I do know there cheap! So get a decent amp that does rated at one ohm and wire it the way you have it now there's not much else you can do with that vc config.

    Re: keep Poping amps...help

    I would suggest you wire a digital voltage meter like this:
    Xscorpion DVM23BB 3-Digit LED Digital Voltage Display VoltMeter
    or whatever you can find and have it linked to the power wire near or at the amp to make sure you do not pull the batt voltage too low...this will fry amps too.
    YOU NEED A CLASS D 1OHM STABLE MONOBLOCK.
