With the system turned off, try turning the gain back and forth full range several times. This will often clear any dust off the resistor surface and is the freebie solution. Obviously you need to put the gain setting back where it was. There is also electrical contact cleaner you can buy in spray cans if you feel like opening up the amp. Most likely the gain potentiometer is sealed though and will not take the cleaner. Only other diy solution is to replace the gain pot which involves soldering.

make sure the power wire and the remote wire have voltage. at least 12 volts. make sure the ground wire is good and has a good solid ground. after that make sure the rca cables are getting signal from the radio. if you have a small speaker or tweeter you can touch the wires from the speaker to the rca cables and it should play music very quietly. meter the subs and make sure theyre ok and not shorted or bad. if all that checks out good.... the amp is probably bad. start with all the simple stuff and work youre way up. if the amp has good power and signal and good speakers then the only thing thats left is the amp. good luck
Well it could be that your ears just got used to the bass. It happend to me after about a week of haveing my subs. And make sure that your power wire hasnt got melted somewhere. also that you have good ground.
the amp have an input harness? those can go bad, or maybe line level inputs are loose. If its not just a loose connection on one of the amps inputs (speaker, line, or power) leading to the circuit board( which could easily be soldered back to the corcuit board), than your looking at an integrated circuit problem- not easy to fix.
St the crossover to LP (low-pass), and around 80Hz for 12" subs or 120Hz for 10" subs. Turn the gain all the way DOWN. Turn the radio about 3/4 or 4/5 the way up. Adjust gain until subs start to sound a wee bit sloppy and then adjust back 1/8 of a turn. Also, DON'T turn the LOUD function on or the BASS all the way up on the radio.... these should really be flat as possible.
