Help!!!!!!!!!

So for some reason my subs sound like they are blown. I took them out and put them in my friends car on his amp and they work fine. so we tried to put his am in my jeep to see if it was the amp and his was doing the same thing. Next we replace the power wire, then the ground, them the remote, then the rca's, and finally the deck and to no avail i still am having the same problem. Amy other options that you might have would be wonderful. I want my thump back badly. I can't understand why i get a blown sound. thanlks.

Re: Help!!!!!!!!!

First thing is to check your ground, and use the same gauge wire for the ground as the power supply. second check your amp fuses. if all was well for 2 years then thats where id start. ideal ground is to seat belt backet somewhere. other than that, have you upgraded your alternator and does it have a regulator on it? also, if your power wire has a nick in the casing and its going to ground it might be enough to distort the sound, as it may back feed through your ground.
