This amp is 2ohm stable, but if you use a dual sub setup and use both sets of output terminals it is automatically wired parallel at 2 ohms if you then have 2 subs that are dual voice coil and the voice coils of both are wired in parallel then the load become .5-1 ohm and the amp is unstable (solution) wire 2 dual voice coil subs individually one from each terminal, and then wire the voice coils in series rather than parallel

Check your wiring to make sure non of the wires are touching ground. If one or more of your speakers are blown, it could cause an open or short (or throw the impedence of the speaker(s) way out of specs). One way to tell if your speaker's voice coil is blown is to physically move the cone in and out from as close to the edges of the dust cover of the speaker coil as possible (not on the dust cover) keeping equal pressure on all sides. If you hear a gritty sound, it could mean your speaker's voice coil is history. On most high-powered amps, it's important that you're not using a common ground (some older inexpensive car units did this so you'd only have to run a single wire to each speaker and use the car body as the ground point for each speaker). I doubt seriously your system does this, but that's why it's important to make certain that the speaker wires are not grounded. You can disconnect the speaker wires from your amp and check each wire for continuity to ground with an ohmmeter.
Also, check the ground point of your amp...if it powers up, the source voltage is probably okay, but there's nothing wrong with running a cable directly from the battery just to make sure.

Placing the speakers next to each other face down, you will notice that the connection points run in sequence +- and +-. Now connect the - (negative) from the one speaker, to the + (positive) of the other speaker. Now connect the open + from the one speaker and the open - from the other speaker to your amp. Your amp should have a bridging indication. On the connection points of the amp, you should see a mark pointing to the first + and the last -. That will be your bridge and thus utilizing the full potential of your amplifier

I'm assuming your amp for testing was NOT a subwoofer output. I could be wrong.
Your source is responsible for creating LFE output. Are you sure it's doing that?
Tune an FM station and connect any other active RCA output from the source (like a Tape Out) to the sub
