You need something called a "Line Output Converter". It will reduce the speaker level signal and is usually adjustable. Most car audio shops have them for about $20.

I got 2 1100 watt sony xplod subs powered off a 1000 watt sony xplod amp, everything works fine i just wanna make sure this will be ok and the amp or subs wont blow or fry.

you can blow a sub out when they are overpowered as well as underpowered. Distortion is the main reason thing go out. distortion occurs when you have the volume n the head unit up all the way and the gains on the amp are up all the way. always make sure the bass plays clear and you should be okay

Lots of distortion

You are either expecting too much from the system or something is overdriven somewhere.

Check the level controls "gain structure" is about having each item in the chain that has a volume control set at the ideal level, rather than having one thing on max and another on min to compensate.

Also, check wiring. Partial short circuits can cause issues such as this. A full short circuit would likely cause the unit to shut down completely.
