check your subs... one might be blown... hook each one up and try it out.... whichever one dosent work might be bad....

on a home amp if the polarity is crossed it will trip your amp into protection. If 1 copper strand from the neg or pos are touching eachother that will trip it also. you need to go back and rewire it and make sure all wires are installed correctly.

is it dual voice coil? make sure u match the dual voice coil loads correctly and check the ohms of the sub to match the amp

dude, you have a lemon sub. If the wires were wrong, you'd still get sound, it would just be crap, trust me, one of your subs is a lemon, easiest way to find out is take a wire, run it from the power to the postive terminal on the sub, if it hums, its good, if nothing its bad.
