Scott, I highly doubt that you would have had a fire on your hands due to your amplifiers. Just about every amplifier since the early 90's comes equipped with both voltage overload and high temp protection in the form of either a fuse or an actual reset breaker. Even if you had some sort of dead short going on, something would pop before you would wind up with actual flames. Even if one of your amp's output transistors had a catastrophic failure, before the fuse or breaker could pop or trip, you may only wind up with a bit of smoke, as I said before, all (UL) amps since the early 90's have the overload protection that I stated. :bigthumbsup

I would recommend fidgeting with your rca's coming out of the amp. Supply power to the amp as normal with no music on, wiggle the RCA cables near the connectors and see if you can duplicate the problem. Cheap, or old worn out RCA cables can cause what you are explaining, as the outer ring of the connector becomes loose from bumps in the road or high bass levels over time. The rca's in my escort do this from time to time (has for years) so ill drop the rear seat back where it's mounted, wiggle the RCA cables, and it will stop for several months. Hope this helps
