I feel like a complete idiot right now. I just put together a system and have had so many problems. I purchased an Rockford Fosgate P650.2 amp last week it's rated at 175wattsx2. My speakers are the Alpine SPX-13REF 5.25 component set. After I hooked up the amp to the speakers I noticed my right woofer cutting in and out. It would stay for a few minutes then go out for a few minutes, then finally no sound at all from the woofer. I thought it could have been a loose wire. I checked the connections and no sound, I pulled the speaker out and ran a short cable directly to the amp without the crossover and still nothing. Today the left woofer went out I had the volume at 25 the max is 35.
So now I have two woofers with no sound, but the crossovers and the tweeters are still working.
I have the amp at High pass filter, the cd player crossover was set at 120hz.
The power ratings for my speakers is RMS Power Cap is 60W and Peak Power is 170W. I was on the understand that you can have a more powerful amp, because it would give the speakers more headroom.
Did the amp blow the speakers or could it be something else?
