    It sounds like you fried your subs. What will happen is they will stop working however it is pretty weird that they both went at the same time. I would suggest running a direct wire without an amp to each sub not the box but to each sub. If they work then something is jacked up in your box or amp. If not then your voicecoils are fried. I would suggest something other then orion for your new ones. No offense but they are not really very good.

    lightly push down on the center of the subwoofers. they should move in and out without any restrictions or rubbing. if it feels like they are rubbing something, chances are they are blown and need to be replaced.

    Touch the two leads of a multimeter set on the ohm-setting across the speaker terminals, if you get 2, 4, or 8 ohms then the woofer aint the problem.
