It may not be the subs, but the amp could have caused the subs blowing/freezing up. If an amp is clipped it will send to much voltage to the subs, thus blowing the subs. Clipping the amp is when someone sets the gains on the amp to higher than the sub can handle. Find this out before you buy new subs. If not, you may have blown subs again.

I'd look for issues when it is not running-does it get spark? When it completely dies, and you try to start it, look at the tachometer, see if it moves-if it does, you have spark. Then you know it is a fuel problem, either the fuel pump is going/gone (can be checked when not running by checking fuel pressure at the rail when cranking)-or it might be as simple as the fuel filter (that'd be nice)-I personally think the IAC (idle air controller) had nothing to do with your problem and your mechanic just threw that part at it-I'd be more inclined to think it was a Mass Air Pressure sensor (MAP) if I was going to suspect something that might cause your problem, an IAC would not do that-is the MAP plugged in?
No matter what, the fuel pressure is easy to check, the filter easy to replace-and the MAP would set a Check Engine Light.
If you've overheated it a number of times, it's possible that you've damaged the amp and it's trying to protect itself even though it's too late. Try disconnecting the sub from the amp. If there's no change, then there's a problem within the amp. It could be a thermal switch or possibly a stressed amplifier module.
First problem is that if you ever have a problem with anything electronic you dont ignore it going on and off or you dont hit it to get it to start working. Thats a true indicator that something is wrong and/or somethings about to break and take everything with it. When it first started to go on and off You could have made sure that the speaker lines were not loose or touching one another or another big problem like this is the speaker wires and how they are ran thru the vehicle sometimes the vibration will rub off the insulation and /or pinch the wire and short it out agains the chassis of the vehicle. The best way for you to trouble shoot this is to first have someone check the speakers and lines. Make sure the inputs are good and disconnect the output lines(speakers wires) from the amp and put a dc meter on one of the outputsw. And have someone turn o0n the power. If theres any dc there for even a spit sec then the amp has blow output devices and probably also bad drivers and predrivers.
At this point find out how much your local repair person would charge you for an estamate. or contact Boss at 323.890.3700 ext. 2770 Good Luck
