I just picked up a pair of MTX Thunder 8000's wired them up, and listened to them. They appeared to not be getting enough power from my ATX 1600.2 amp. So i though i would bridge one. Me being new to car audio did not know how to bridge an amp. i have since then learned my mistake. when i wired the sub the first time i took 2 speaker wires and hooked them both up to the amp, Then i twisted the positive ends of the two wires together and the negative ones together and put them in the sub. when i turned it on the amp went into protection mode. i knew i had messed up and went inside to look online only to see that i wired them wrong. i hooked up the other sub in the correct way in a bridge and it worked wonderfully. Then i tried the other sub and the amp went into protection mode. So i think i may have blown one of my MTX's, but i am not sure. if i did i was wondering where i could pick up a re-cone kit.
