    Speakers distorting when bass hit! HELP!

    I've got a box loaded with (4) 8" Eminence and (4) SuperTweets. On a lot of songs I play, my Mids/Highs will be screaming and are crystal clear but when the bass hits, they start to distort and don't sound quite as loud. Why is this? I'm running a Hifonics BX2005D at 2ohms's putting out a actual 1000-1100 watts and running a Kicker 650.4 off of only 2 of it's channels. I have stock Electrical sytem with 160amp Alt so I don't think running too much power is the issue. What could be doing this to my speakers?

    It's only when I got it cranked full blast. Sounds very loud and crystal clear at full volume, but as soon as that bass hits, it's starts to distort. And when the bass stops again in the song, it goes back to clear and loud.

    They are Pyramid TW-46's. What do you mean seperate from the backside? I don't think it's so much of the tweeters as the speakers doing the distorting, could be both but it's hard to tell.

    Due to your lack of car audio vocabulary no one can understand what this means?
