SOURCE: my kicker amp turns off
It sounds like you may have the load impedance too low. How many voice coils per woofer? How many ohms is each coil? If you have DVC woofers, are the coils for each woofer wired in series or parallel? Are the speakers wired in series or parallel. Let me know if you need me to clarify anything.

As stated before, knowing the impedance of your subwoofer would really help the situation. Either way the link I have provided is to your subwoofers manual (Incase you dont have it)
But since you have said it has smoked, if it still works I recommend turning the bass boost down (Bass boost causes alot of heat within the subwoofers voice coil and even within the amp itself and should never be maxed out.)
Here is a link to your manual for the subwoofer.
So as a solution to your issue, keep your bass boost turned down. You should almost never need it if you have tuned your amp correctly (You have a very serious subwoofer there)
Consider yourself lucky if your subwoofer is still working without issues.

Subsonic refers to frequencies too low for the human ear to hear. Generally humans can hear frequencies in the range of 20 to 20000 hertz (cycles per second), but we hear best in the range of 1000 to 4000 hertz. High amplitude subsonic frequencies can cause damage to your speakers so many amplifiers have an electronic filter in them to reduce the amplitude of these very low frequency signals.

Look for a frayed speaker wires. Look everywhere. Start where you can see and then look under carpet, under seats, trunk and everywhere wires go throgh a hole in steel frame. Any minor connection between the two speaker wires will cause high-power systems to go into protection mode. Wires can be damaged by long-term vibrations of your car, people stepping on badly placed wires under carpet, moving seats (when adjusted) or even rodents bitting on the wiring. Look closely and you will normally find it. Also look closely where you connect your speaker wires to the amp. One small strand of wire jumping across to another terminal will cause a short and cause protection mode.

Hi Big Nick,
Sounds like you have got almost all the good out of those Subs. You can find the screws you need at almost any hardware store or Auto parts store. The light is becase you are dloading the amp with low OHMS. You may need use one channel and Run the wiring like written blow to get the power problem to disappear.
