HELP! speaker tunning

just blew a 165V2 woofer!, and tweeters sound ifffy ~maybe~, i was just wondering whats a good safe way to set them for clean sound as i dont want to blow my new set, this is my current settings, all in 2way, Alpine 9835 deck, SW chanel set to 80, with 24 slope, rear set to 100 with 24 slope, frount 160 with a 24 slope, and on the pasive crossovers theres a switch that says S1 (assuming this is tweeter) and it has 0 -3 -6, its set to zero, and than a switch that says S2 (assuming thats woofer) which says 6 and full, that is set to full, (all my EQ's are off, and defeats on), also, my amp (mrv-f545) HP/LP is set to off, and the gain is 0.4 it goes to 0.2) (is my gain to high?

could be the gain scale it back see how it sounds, how far up do you turn your volume for it to be loud?

I'm surprised you blew it with those settings for your cross over. At 100 and 150 hz with 24 db/oct slopes, you really have to push a speaker hard and long to blow them. Maybe the comps were slightly defective, or the amp??? How old are the comps?...nothing lasts forever, maybe they've done thier time???
