SOURCE: amp getting really hot
If depends on what the amp is rated to run. If it is only rated to run 2 ohms x2ch then it can only run 4 ohms x1ch. If you run it at 1 or 2 ohms that is too low, too much current, and it will get hot and eventually blow up under hard use. Some quality amps can live that way, and it depends on the sub and what frequency you are running it at. For normal use I would not recommend it. Wire to sub at 4 ohms x1 (or 2 ohms x2ch) for that amp if that is what it is supposed to be at, I'm not sure from your description. Also enhance cooling of the amp if you can, I run fans on mine if they have a heat issue. Warm is one thing, hot is another and not good for amp.

It's likely that the amplifier has shorted output transistors. If that's the case, they will have to be replaced. If you have zero experience with electronic repair, you should pay someone to repair it instead of trying to repair it yourself.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

ok this gets confusing sometimes. Ok first look to see what ohm your subs are. If you have a dual 4 ohm sub When you run that on sub + to + and - to - then that will make that sub 2 ohm. its different on ohm if the sub is say a 8 ohm then putting the wires that way will bring that sub to 4 ohm. Now lets say you have 2 subs that are dual 4 ohm and wire both of them + to + and - to - and go bridge the amp which would be both wires from sub both + together and both - wired bridge on the amp will make it a 1 ohm to the amp. Please post what ohm your subs are and i can tell you alittle more about it

That is still a single channel cass D amp. Each (-) and each (+) terminal are connected so its actually like only having one. This is so you can hook speakers up in a series circuit to lower impedance, because this amp is 1ohm stable. What causes your speakers to blow is too much power. What kind of speakers are you running? This hifonics amp is very powerful, they are getting big in the competition industries beacuse they put our true power for less money and they are tough. That 1600 amp you have may be putting out more like 1800 watts at 14.4 volts which is 900 per sub at 1ohm so be careful this amp has tons of power and its true rated its not like a sony or rocksford or kenwood that says 1800 max and then in small writing it says 500 rms. This amp puts out true. I have 3 hifonics amps and love them.
