    Rip 2 Memphis 12's...but how?

    So i threw my two memphis pr 12's in my box i bought for my sundown e 12's(waiting for my sundowns to come in)(l ported 1.75 cubes each tuned to 36 hz)

    They were banging and working fine on pandora ,until i put a young jeezy cd in and after a few songs. I heard no more bass. checked the trunk and they were toast

    I got a stock 05 impala,4guage,gain set with dmm.Amp is a hifonics brz 1200.1. How did this happen?
