    This boys onto it . My guess is that the 6*8 is not a 2 ohm speaker there are not many if any that are ,unless you have them in parallel, most are 4 ohm while house stereo are 8 ohm *(i believe) your amp will be overloading .

    I dont think its a wiring problem or you would more than likly get a interference with your sub amp just a spk prob, but check your conns anyway. RCA's wont shut an amp down they only transfer the audio signal,

    they SHOULD be the same size as the power with SOLID connections.
    lol, I know that, I was just making sure the OP had that, could be a reason for his/her troubles...
