Chances are your speakers were "fake rated" as are most consumer quality speakers.
Unless the speakers were rated for CONTINUOUS power at 500 watts each you could easily destroy them with that amp.
Check the DC bias out of the amp. If it is under a volt, your speakers were fake rated.
This fake rating is to sell speakers and depends upon average music programing that does not have continuous high level.
Get professional speakers in MATCHED cabinets that have CONTINUOUS pwer ratings above what the amp can produce. ALSO suggest you put fuses in your speaker leads to protect the speakers.
WITHOUT proper cabinets, the speakers can be blown.
You should probably get a sound level meter to check that you are not damaging your ears. No fun in later life requiring expensive hearing aids! There are professional quality meters for about $140 on eBay.
