I have this hooked to a 600w explod amp. All i get from my speakers is bass. Can anyone tell me if this sounds like a certain problem that can easily be fixed? I have no idea what to look for, or if my speakers are blown :(.
You amp has a low pass filter turned on. There should be a switch to turn it off on the amp, otherwise you need a different amp. Be careful, 600 watts is WAY over the v1342a's rated power of 45 watts rms. If you turn it up too loud, that amp will easily blow your speakers.

Walmart or a Specialty Audio Shop would carry a basic wiring kit for your job at task. As for the additional amp, thats your personal preference. If the Toxic Tx-600 AMP is a 600w amp, then I would say that is decent unless you're looking to get tickets for sound violations.. if you live in a city.
There is a possibility that you may be overpowering or under-powering your speakers with the amp you are currently using or are playing notes below the specified range of "Hz" of the subwoofer causing the sub to sound distorted or as you would call it "chattering".
If the speakers range is 130hz-45hz and your playing notes at 30hz and dont have it tuned at the crossover either on the amp or the stereo to suit the subwoofer, the speaker will try and play the note regardless and will cause the cones to move beyond its range and may cause it to slap the magnet which can damage the subwoofer if consistently played that way. Please let me know if this solved your problem..
you may need a new head unit. it sound like you have lost the fron rca hook ups on your unit. common prob. usually cause by a surge traveling then the rca cables. i myself have had this happen and there is nothing you can do to the unit to fix it.
Did you have it hooked up by a professional or did you (or someone you know) do it. If a shop/pro didnt do it make 100% sure everything is hooked up right. Increase the size of your power wire from your battery to the amp. Check your gain settings on the amp. If the vehicle you have this in has a trunk (not a hatch back), position your speakers against the back seat facing you as your putting them in the trunk. If none of this works, buy bigger speakers and more power!
To run 2 subs, the amp would be a little small. The subs will run OK, they just won't be very loud.
It's usually better to compare and match up the RMS power rather than the peak power. The Sony XS-L10P5B sub has a peak power handling figure of 1200 watts, but the RMS is 300 watts. The Sony XM-ZZR3301 monoblock amp puts out 1100 watts peak, but only 330 watts RMS. They would work great together, 1 sub, 1 amp. But if you add another sub, each one would only be getting about 165 watts. They'd work OK, just not as loud as they could be.
I'm sorry to tell you but it sounds like you may have put to much bass at a decent power rating through them and there not designed to be replaced. The whole speaker needs to be replaced. Do not use it as you are running a risk of shorting the circuitry in your radio or amp if the impedence is off from the blown speakers and can burn it up also.
It's likely that the cone is damaged, which isn't repairable. However, another problem I've seen with Sony speakers comes when the tweeter pod becomes loose on its mount. To check this, look at the bottom of the speaker magnet. In the center of the back plate, there should be a small screw. It might be hiding under a sticker. Try tightening the screw, if possible.
