I'm a fixit yourself person and I really need some help on this one. First of all the amp was giving to me alreadysemi disaasembled. All the N-Channels mossfits where missing sept for 1. I grabbed the number off of it and ordered new ones. I checked for shorts after installing them, checked out ok. Installed in my vehicle and it does work but,it is getting hot very fast and is also trying to melt the power and ground wire when on. I don't think them are the right power mossfits that belong in this amp. The only one in it where I got the number to replace it, you could tell that it got replaced before.How can I get a hold of a schematic or just the number off an original power mossfit so I can fix this amp the right way....

Try switching around one of the pos/neg speaker wires (you may have one crossed and they are firing out of phase, meaning when one pushes out the other pushes in and vise versa causing the base signals to cancel each other out) while the system is playing, only switch one speaker,not both. You can normally look at the subs and tell if they are moving very good and not much bass is there, you could also have the wrong box for them, this will also give a similar result
I used to have a similar model, vs1405, and it was advertised to have 600w max. Its rms ratings were 260w bridged @ 4ohm. and 80x2 @ 4 ohm.
So I really wouldnt expect much.
I would personally suggest the HiFonics Brutus. Very nice amps for the price, and have TONS of power.
it may be a wiring problem you need to make sure all the speaker positives and negatives are correct. I sell alot of hifonics amps and have never had 1 do that. it may also be a bad rca cable. if it only does it when you use the filter i would say not to use it also make sure the gain is no more than 3/4 turned up and the bass boost no more than 1/2. if you have a dif amp try a temp setup using it and if it still does it its a wiring issue. also try 1 speaker at a time on the hifonics and keep adding 1 till it comes back it may be a bad voice coil on 1 sub .
well your amplifier is obviously going into protect mode,(i used to have this amp and it is awesome) anyway i would go through just to be sure and check all the power connections with a test light, remote wire, positive, and ground. and check the fuse to see if it is still good. you can buy a test light at wal-mart and any automotive store. if you stil have a problem then i would check to see if your running below 1 ohm on this amp. that would cause it to go into protect mode. if all this fails i would just go buy a new one.
