There's your problem. You have Power Acoustic amp. It is not a high quality amp.
You either shorted out the speaker wire and overloaded the amp, or power problem on the amp.
Be glad your car didn't catch fire.
Check all your fuses and see if the amp still powers up. It's most likely blown.
Not worth repairing. Get a better amp.
BTW, was the amp's gain/level set correctly? Did you meet the minimum speaker ohm requirement?

Hey, make sure to throw in plenty of in-line fuses during the re-build process so you dont blow yourself up, next time.
Maybe install some fire extinguishers too.
Its serious stuff, 1000 watts. It can kill you.

add up the fuses on the amp, example if your amp has 2x20 AMP fuses on it, then buy a 40 AMP inline fuse. (the fuse that goes by the battery)
