A faulty voice coil may be to blame on one of the subs...when it heats up it starts to act up leading to a undesired preformance.

I have an sony xplod 4 channel 600 watt amp

First are they in the same box? If so and they are sharing the same air space running one amp to both is best andwill perform better. One woofer could be over powering the other and or you could have a woofer problem. A lso your wiring coul be problem. When amp is bridged it changes the OHM reading and output your other woofer may not be rated at or able to handle a lower Ohm rating also it coul blow that woofer if it hasn't already hapened . Be careful. check woofers independently for operation and check the non performing woofer on an unbridged power source or amp. Hope this helps. Write back if not.

I have a 1200 watt sony xplod amp hooked up to a 15" SBL Gorilla sub. The bass hit for a while and then started to cut off. Now it wont work unless i touch the remote wire to the power wire, and even then...

this kind of problems usually happen when the amp is not getting enough current to power up the  
 amp. the moment a loud low frequency hits the amp it fails. cud be ur power unit not giving enough power to the amp or u have a loose connection somewhere on ur power line. besides 8gauge is a bit small. try using about 4gauge. should have good ground too. they draw large current so ur battery should be in top condition as well.

I hooked this 1000 watt amp up.it turns on but it

Your amp needs to be serviced. Bad protection circuit. Take it to a local car audio shop and have them bench test it first to be sure. Hope this helps.

One hits harder then other

Check the Polarity on the subs, you might have to invert one. Best way i know of to test is get a BASS CD -=download a bass test cd...legally of course=- and check for a test that will just flutter the speakers in and out and see if they both go in and out in the same way, if one is in and the other is out that could be your problem
