    Stay away from bridges or any railroad crossings, you should be okay. Thanks for listening.

    Find an amp that is stable at the impedance of your speaker system. Also the amp does not have to run at the limit of the speaker's power rating. Finally, insure that your car has enough power to run your amp and speakers and the power wiring is heavy enough to support the load.

    We can't guess how much power your car makes to run a stereo, but you gave us all the info needed to build speaker cabinets for the speakers you have. You might be able to rewire your speakers to higher impedance and not overheat the amp you have.

    1) you sound very rude

    2) if I knew what I was talking about do you think I would have asked question on here

    a) Most of the info you have provided is irrelevant. Just tell us the brand and model

    number of your amp so we can check the specs and tell you what the issue is.

    b) Your terminology is incorrect. You do not "bridge" speakers, you bridge the channels of a multi-channel amplifier, if the amp supports bridging. What you do with speakers and voice coils is wire them in parallel or series configuration.

    c) My guess is that you've wired the subs in parallel for a 1 ohm total load, which your amp cannot handle. Try wiring the voice coils in series for 8 ohms, and then connect the subs in parallel for 4 ohm total impedance. .
