Looks like a grounding problem to me.
What wiring are you running ?
Have you given ground/earthing to the amp properly?
What RCA cables are you running.

Contact Low_Bass_Maker or Gunbir on the forum,they will help you out in solving the probs.

My reccomendation:

Just check the RCA cables if its fixed properly and probably try grounding them,set the HPF "ON" from your amplifier and play around with the "Gain" and "HPF" frequencies,do try to tune the crossover by shuffling the wires to get the correct phase of Input/Woofer/Tweeter done!!!
