Make sure your frequency is no higher than 80 on the low and 120 on the high. Check speaker polarity with a AA battery(Speaker pops out when polarity is correct) Make sure the speaker crossovers are working properly. Check your ohm load when you connect the speakers together with a multimeter at the amp. Ohms that are too low = heat. See what your amp is rated for. After all that, turn the gain down all the way, turn up the volume to 25-28 and readjust the gains
Are you shure all volume controls are set on max? Bass / treble or some kind of equalizer or enhancer turned on? If it's still too low, use a Boss Porta Pro headset, buy external speakers or connect to a stereo system.
Make sure all your connections are tight , really tight . Check ground , make sure it's to clean shiney metal. Three subs are going to have a low ohm load if paralleled . These amps are not 1 ohm stable ,if below 1.5 ohm's you will have problems. They need to be series paralleled to raise the ohm load. These amps put out the same power from 4 to 1.5 ohms.
It's probably blown tweeters. But if you want to spend the money on a hipshot guess, try to find the the crossovers somewhere first; then find the readily available tweeters if/when that doesn't work out. Google "alesis monitor one MK2 tweeter".
You could test the tweeters by just removing one non-functional tweeter and wiring it directly to the speaker leads and with REALLY LOW volume containing NO BASS see if it makes any sound, which would prove it does/does not work.
Going forward, if the speakers sound stressed at high volume - THEY ARE. Too much power or too much distortion (overdriven amplifier) will kill speakers.
you will need to access the bass and treble setting on the unit.
If you have stnadard speaker then dont put the bass to high as you can not turn the volume up high.
The same for the treble.
Set them at about the same and turn the volume up until it sounds good.
If it is to quiet then turn the treble and bass down and then the volume up more
Sounds like your overpowering the horns and the circuit breaker is tripping to prevent them from blowing. You are running more power then they can handle. You can turn down the volume or will have to purchase higher wattage horns...
I used to have a set of speakers with 'poly switch' over-current protectors (kind of a 'soft' fuse the size of a small ceramic capacitor) installed in-line with the speaker terminals.
(Each speaker in an enclosure needed its own device.)
The theory was they appeared as a dead short until their rating was exceeded, going open-circuit to protect the (assumed, more expensive) speaker element. When things 'cooled down' it returned to the former short status and the speakers came alive again.
Testing the device with a decent drive signal (it worked), I noticed the sound 'strangled' and only a low-volume, higher-frequency component of the source signal was heard through the speaker.
(So I guess it wasn't *totally* open circuit...)
After a few seconds of signal removal (and reduction of source volume) the sound came back to normal.
Here's my thought: Perhaps your speakers have these devices installed and the devices are operating accordingly.
Of course, if the source signal is of a known low-volume, then it sounds like an amplifier component is failing on load.
Especially if the speakers behave normally using another amplier.
