it was at 10 (my headunit goes to 50), the gain on the amp is set at half. the loudest i put it was 20 this afternoon outside work, that wasnt for long coz i know subs need time to break in,

they have been installed(and used) for about 7 or 8 hours all together so it should be broken in by now shouldnt it? its a twin sub enclosure, 2x10inch subs, neither of them work.

What kind of wires did you use? And were the wires thick enough inside the box? I bought a shitty splx twin box a while back and fitted my JBL's into it, only to find that the wires in the box had fried after a couple of hours use!

Dont be fooled by the wiring, its possible your amp is not earthed good enough or the power feed has been broken. Before you say 'the light is on' the amp can be powered up via the remote feed believe it or not.

That happend to me back when I was into installs, I completely removed the power cable and the amp still lit up with an earth and remote.
