Since you live close to me, I know a few guys that might have a good two channel for you to buy.

Before you buy another amp, first find out why you fried your current amp. You want to make sure your Ohm load doesnt exceed that of what your amp can handle.

Lastly, I cant stress this enough, dont use the gain as a volume. Set them up properly to your HU'* preamp output. Not saying you did, but most people crank on that amp gain and end up clipping the amp which will shorten its life as well as your subs life.

honestly, not to insult your intelligence, I would check the fuse in the main power wire as well and at the amp. You just never know what it could be
