So what is the watt specs on the amp and where is i > located The *watt specs* on in car audio are utterly bogus and unreliable. They're usually measured at something like 10% distortion too ! If you had a multimeter you could check if the new speakers are still ok - either there will be some continuity across the terminals ( in which case they're ok ) or it's open circuit and they're broken. You can substitute a small wattage light bulb, battery and some wires to do this job too actually. Oh - you can't 'kill' an amp by fitting higher wattage speakers than the amp - that's ok - the other way round isn't so smart. You do need to ensure that the speakers and amp are compatible *impedances* though. In car audio is normally 4 ohms. Graham
