Alright i wanna know why i still have distortion. i hope someone can help because its drivin me crazy. i have 2 pioneer 10's at 350 Rms. my pioneer 760 watt amp is bridged at 360 watts x 1 channel. i thought that if you just bridge two sets of speaker wire to my subs that the wattage will evenly split to 190watts rms to each sub. so 190watts is nowhere near the 350watts that my speakers can handle. the subs are in sealed box if that means anything.

PLEASE HELP! what are any reason for this distortion

That is more than likely the reason why you are getting the distortion. Underpowering a sub WILL NOT hurt it, but when you underpower, many people tend to turn up the volume more to compensate not realizing what they are doing and thus driving the amp into clipping. Best thing to do is to get a more powerful amp or watch the volume.

are these 4 ohm subs?
if so, you have a 2 ohm load on a bridged amp that's only 4 ohm stable in that mode.
the amp is clipping badly.
