i have a sony 1600 amp pushing a orion h2 15.4 wired in parallel to get a 2 ohm load the voice coils are smelling really bad it already burnt ther coils on 2 mtx 8000 series 15s is that because im not running eneugh power or just because it is a shity amp? i was thinking of running a 2400 watt rms orion amp would that do the trick? also is there something i can run between the amp and the sub to stop my voice coils from burning up? let me know. thank you

Mike, you hit the nail on the head. Sony is a $hitty amp. No wonder why you're burning up the VCs.
You should take 5 mins of your time and email Sony about just how "great" their products are. I'm sure they won't give a rat's a$$.
What burns up VCs the most are distortion and clipping. They originate from the HU. Lot of them will distort around 85% mark on the volume. Now add Sony into the mix and you have a deadly combo.
If you're going to have good subs, then you need an amp to match it. You can't have cheap crap driving the subs, and vise versa.
Everytime I hear subs being blown, 9/10, it's cause they were using half a$$ HUs and amps.
