I believe the red LED mentioned above is the protection LED of the amp. Two work arounds:
1) Check is there any short circuit in the speaker wires. From the symptoms most probably this must be the issue. Remove any suspected cable and keep only other speakers and observe this problem is occurring again or not. If still not ok, then disconnect all the speaker cables and check the protection LED is still glowing red, if yes then its a problem with amplifier itself.
2) Is the distortion in sound coming when playing any particular genre of music?. May be it is a problem with high current draw playing high bass?. Turn off the bass boost switch and check still the sound is muffled.
