yes, it can force an amp to run under its lowest ohm, without protection circuits it would overheat it and smoke.

I think that might be whats wrong ....you see, my x7 burned up, my SPL amp burned up, and my Soundstream amp burned up. The x7 lasted 2 months. the spl lasted 2 days. and the Soundstream lasted a couple of hours. I checked and i double checked the ground, I made sure there was absolutly no paint or rust or rubber coated meteal was touching the ground. The ground is fine, it is directly on the trucks frame.
I pushed my subwoofers in and I didnt hear any "cruching" sound. I still not sure that my subwoofers are the cause of my amps burning up. I am wiring them correctly. The last two amps I had were 1 ohm stable, but I was only running them at 2 ohm.
Is it possible that my capacitor is causing my amps to burn up? I dont know how it is if it is even possible, but I dont want to rule anything out.
BTW, all my amps died the same way. I heard a loud pop, probably the MOSFETS poping. Non of my amps went into thermal protection, though all of them claimed to have it.
Someone plz help me.
Also, if it is bad voice coils causing the amp to go into a lower ohm load, wouldnt it be louder?

and how is your electrical system? voltage dropping to under 10 volts will cause an amp to blow up i bet your electrical system isn't up to par.

I have a voltage meter on my HU and on my Cap, the lowest voltage amount they have read was around 11 volts. My electrical system is also fine, although it is a stock altentator. My electrical system is 14.5 volts at idle. There are guys who are running the same amount of Power on their stock electrical system, and they do fine.

these most likely dont have a high enough sampling rate to accurately show your voltage drop however. most caps only sample every couple seconds, use a dependable multimeter to get an accurate reading
