uh you can't hear distortion?

Go to a local shop and ask them if they have an RTA or a term-lab (which has a built in o-scope that'll see if you're signal is clipping)

Your sub doesn't handle the resistance your amp does. If your amp was sending out DC that means your amp was fried nothing to do with your subs.

Once again your sub doesn't handle resistance. Look at the specs of your amp it will tell you how low your amp can go. If your sub is 4ohms or 2 ohms that's all it can be if it's dual 2ohm it can be 1ohm or 4ohm, if it' dual 4ohm it can b 2ohm or 8ohm just depends on how you wire it

You can only wire it to 1 or 4ohms. If you want one sub to have a final 2ohm load you need 4DVC However if you got another 2DVC sub you could wire them together (series-parallel) for 2ohm

you mentioned having the 1234, then you linked to the 1232. The 1234 can be wired for 2 ohms, the 1232 for 1 ohm. Either sub would be fine with the 1400D, but at 2 ohms it puts out 800w, at 1 ohm about 1000w.

Greeting soundblaster - wire your sub to a 1 ohm load and turn the gains down all the way .
Turn all bass boost off , and all bass EQ off on yoru head unit and amp .
turn your gains up slowly while playing your favorite HEAVY bass CD until teh head unit volume reaches 3/4 of maximum volume and listen for distortion .
The bass notes will not sound clear and concise they will sound like they are hitting teh same note twice somewhat ..
