    Icon32 Door speakers are burning!?

    I replace my 4 door speakers on my 1997 Ford Explorer with Kenwood - 6" x 8" 3-Way Car Speakers with Polypropylene Cones Model: KFC-C6893PS Handles up to 240 watts peak power (80 watts RMS).
    And using a Alpine - 200W Class A/B Bridgeable 4/3/2-Channel MOSFET Amplifier w/ Adjustable Crossover Model: MRP-F300 4-, 3- and 2-channel design connected to a Kenwood KDC-MP828 head unit. I am running them low pass 4 channel setup. The speakers sound pretty good but when I turn them up and the song has alot of bass...... I can smell the speakers burning (they are not blown YET!)
    I turn them down and after a little bit the smell goes away and the speakers sound fine.
    I was reading and I heard something about some kind of liquid that burning off the voice coil from the manufacturing process... But i'm not sure this is the case because I smell it months later.
    I hooked them up high pass and had the same problem.
    Should I build a pod for the rear of the 6X8s to make the speakers more solid so they dont bounce so much? I'm lost and if I can get a few ideas to solve this problem..... that would be great!!
    Thank you

    Might not have the speakers crossed right, probably playing too low of frequencies.

    Umm.. you're running them low pass? Why? Run it high pass.
