    Well.... that's where we differ. I think it was an absolute rip-off. It doesn't help that your fancy set-up has ruined to pairs of subs for you now haha.
    But in all honesty, it sounds like something has gone bad in that amp, and it's sending DC volts to the speakers. When that happens, the sub will lock up exactly as you're describing. If this is the case, it means a bad amp. Which means you should be able to return it.... especially at the price you paid. You can test for this as described above. Take your DMM to the speaker terminals on the amplifier, and read for DC voltage.

    Thanks for your recommendations. I will try this when I get home tonight. I am actually hoping this is the problem, because everything else has been troubleshooted.

    I more than likely have no manufacturer warranty, because it was all purchased from unauthorized retailers! But the sellers I purchased them from should work with me.
