    Your supposed to play the Subwoofers not Smoke them. I hope you got a good high off of it.

    I'm only just now starting to learn about mobile audio systems, and what little I've learned may or may not help you with a home system. Anyway, I'm wondering what signals you're sending to your subs from the amp... what range of frequencies are you sending to them? Using a crossover? What are the ohm ratings of the amp and of the subs? What is the wiring configuration you are using to connect the subs to the amp? Are the subs of a single voice coil or dual voice coil design?
    The diagram below shows how wiring two subs to an amp can change the load on the amp.
    I'm sure with the answers you provide, some gurus will step in here and help guide you.
    Good luck.

    Can you take a photo of what your sound system looks like now?
