In fact, it was a VOODOO kit with the digital fuseholder

Ill get pics up later.
For 1 thang, your 2 JL 12W3's are way underpowered with that 500 watt JL amp. Do you know if they are 2 ohm or 4 ohm subs ? Hopefully 4 ohm, if you want to keep powering them with that JL amp for now.

What head are you using ? Is it the stock head ?

What are your 4 full range speakers ?

The Almani 4 channel likely does around 75 watts RMS per channel, which is fine, but not near the rated 125 watts RMS. Otherwise, looks like a solid amp.

The Almani amp should have an 80 amp fuse immediately after the distribution block in the minimum 4 gauge power wire going to it. The JL amp should have a 60 amp fuse likewise located in its minimum 8 gauge power wire. You should have a minimum 2 gauge main power wire from the battery to the distribution block with a 150 amp fuse within 18 inches from the battery.

Make sure all that is good to go.

There's nothing wrong with under powering subs.

I never said it is wrong. They are underpowered by half. It makes no sense to have a subwoofer that needs twice the power you have to reach it's potential. It will work and no problem as long as the amp gain is set to where it is not sending a clipped signal trying to do more than it can.

Blown sub. I hooked my amp to my pioneer sub. The pioneer works the Alpine e10 has no power or sound for some reason.

so I looked at the ground the JL audio amp, and its cut like after a foot, so Im guessing thats a problem, is there any way that I could tie it in with the Almai amp's ground? do I even need both amps for both of the sub-woofers to work? Ill check the fuses next

I figured out the ground for the JL amp isnt cut, it just came out of its connector (?) to ground the wire, so Im guessing if I take that off and made a better connection it will work again?

It should, the ground is very important. Be sure to sand/clean the spot.
