Re: speakers

Unless the manufacturer offers a rebuild kit, a rebuilt sub will never be precisely the same as it was originally. The best option is to send them in for repair. If they are inexpensive, it may be less expensive to purchase new subs.

If you blew them once, it's likely that you'll blow them again so the replacements should be rated for higher power handling.

Is there any way to reduce output power of this amp so that it wont fry 400w subs?

500x 1 is 500watts/1 channel.

First you will bring up the volume on the head unity to the point where your mid speaker will no have distortion.Now slowly bring up the gain on the amp to the point where it will not have distortion.If you looking at the sub speaker while doing that you will see at some point the speaker can take no more.So set it just below that point.

My amp burn one of my 3 subs and i keep playing

You are probably exceeding the rating for the speakers. This amp can deliver 2000 watts to a 2 ohm load. You would need MASSIVE speakers to take this much power. The best of speakers can probably take an HONEST 400 watts... although most LIE big time about their capability. ALSO the spaekers have to have an ENGINEERED enclosure when run at high power. It is unlikely you cna drive 3 speakers evenly so they share the power... one is gonna get fried first...
then the remaining ones will fry...

ALSO make sure you don't send music pitches higher than what the speakers are designed to take. Make sure your crossover prevents highs from getting to subs.

Amp has power but now sound

You have not given any information on your models. Chances are you wired them incorrectly. either the first time, or both times. How do you know you burned up the sub and not the amp? chances are the amp is fried, most likely due to wiring the speakers to the wrong impedance.

My amp

Check your speakers with an ohm meter. They should have some resistance but not totally shorted. Its prob the amp that got fried. Connect the amp to the battery with no speakers attached to it if the protection light still comes on then the amp is blown.

If the amp is blown you can send it to people on ebay and get it fixed pretty cheap. Good luck!
