Help from Audiophiles

I installed a pair of JBL GTO638 speakers as a direct replacement for stock. Ran them cross country with no issues. After the trip in August I installed a picasso Nano 350. The amp was set with little gain and a slight bass boost. Speakers woke right up. Last month I discovered that there was no low end what so ever coming trough speakers. Plenty of volume in mid/upper range, but no lows.

Question is: what makes more sense
1. Did i burn out voice coil on the low end of the speakers, or
2. Did I damage the bass boost or other part of the amp.

I sort of feel like I have damaged the speakers and not the amp since the RMS of the JBL's is only like 60 watts, and the Nano @ 2ohms claims 175 watts?

I have yet to pull the fairing, but any opinions welcome.

2013 FLTRX B B P, 11 in Paughco RG Apes, V & H Monster Round, American custom dual header, SE high flow air intake, 8.5 in Klock Werks shield, Monotubes up front, lots of blacked out chrome parts, and the list goes on.......

You probably just blew the speakers. Use the stockers to test if you still have them.

Check the phase on your speakers (+plus -minus). if one is wired in reverse polarity of the other, it phase cancels the other at different distances and frequencies. It could be what sucked the bass out of your sound.
