Re: I immediately blew my new subs.
you should read the tutorial on setting amplifier gains.. also, you can probably get those subs replaced under warranty. That amp is rated at 2 ohms so you need a 2 ohm final load, meaning that if you want to run 2 type R's, you need the D2 version, but wire them to 2ohms final. You can check the impedance thread for info on how to do this.. now, when you hook all of your crap up, make sure all of the amp settings are at 0. Gain all the way down, bass boost all the way down, etc. I would even keep the filters down until you set the gain properly. Also, make sure the settings on your head unit are at 0 as well. the bass, subwoofer settings, "loudness," etc. keep them all at 0, then properly set your gains.
