    There is nothing you or we can do to make that amp put out anything close to clean and rated power, and even assuming you give the subs clean power they likely have about a 30% failure rate right out of the box.
    Hate to agree cause its kinda harsh but... Agree with this. Change out your amp.

    All day I'm clippin'
    voltage be dippin'
    I don't give a damn,

    Have you read any of the post? Start buy setting the gains correct, there is a sticky in the amp section. You are going to be very disapointed.

    Dont set it to the 1500 is says it does. Set it to the 700 it might do

    Re: Subs keep blowing.

    i will bet its wired to 1ohm being that turning the gain up more it goes into protect.
    its not a sub prob its a amp prob...

    Re: Subs keep blowing.

    yea hate to say it but everyone iv known to by boss learned quick, i mean comon you can get a so called amp rated for 5000 watts which i would doubt it puts out half that for a 100 bucks somethings not right. and i would almost guarntee the subs cant handle the rated power.not trying to hate but you live and learn.i would try and sell them for what ever you can get.and normally i would say check reviews but iv seen thiers and whoever bought it and said great buy is fuc***g retarted.and yes subs are not pickey on ohm load amps are check your wiring again and then double check,i really dont see your amp going into protect from an 8ohm load but if its is in one ohm probably.and also what size wiring do you have.

    im talkin about this sub not subs in general.. iv actually done a fair amount of research on these an everyone says they destroy themselves running at 1ohm

    Heat or exceeding mechanical limits are the only reasons a sub will blow. Impedance has 0 to do with it. All these subs were either being over-powered/clipped or bottomed out.

    Wow. I had to read that like 3 times just to understand what you were saying. Try using the spacebar, correct punctuation and capitalize the first letter of a sentence.

    Re: Subs keep blowing.

    He's saying read the guide on how to set your amp. Part of the process is knowing how much power your amp puts out in rms power. That amp claims to put out 1500 rms, it actually puts out half of that probably. So in the gain set process, you would set it using 500-700 wrms because that's all that turd can do.

    again im sayin from what iv heard from at least 5 people say "these" subs even at lower power fail at 1ohm

    No.... no you didn't. That doesn't even make the littlest bit of sense, and the odds that 5 different people told you that is astronomical.

    You made that **** up didn't you?
