Re: Hi!, and a few questions. . .
Welcome to the forum! It's a great place to learn about car audio. You have a lot going on in your new ride. As far as the amp going into protect, I would check the wiring first, and most likely it's going to be your ground. I would try to find a better ground location. This is a possibility, not necessarily what is wrong. It will take more efort on your end to track down the problem. I hope it's not your amp that is messed up. That amp should push those speakers fine as long as it's hooked up correctly and set correctly. Here is a link for a subforum with the mst commonly asked questions and their prospective answers:
New to car audio? Read this first.
You have a pretty good bit of money to buy a new sub stage, so i would first check in the classifieds on this site. There are a lot of really good deals going on right now from reputable people.
And don't be a stranger to the search button at the top. It has helped me significantly drop the amount of time it takes to find the answers to my car audio related problems.
and again i wanna welcome you! Feel free to PM me with any concerns you have!
