You need to EQ the lower end out. Or if you can use a lowcut on a mixing desk (if your using one)

If your recording into a software program you want it to read at about +4dB as a good standard.

You could try lifting the subwoofer off the floor or placing it on top of something soft (like a pillow), that may make it sound crappy however.

Place the subwoofer on some high density foam. Most of the vibrations will be absorbed and, heck, your bass will sound clearer.

the thing is that it only happens when i play my own recordings, never when playing other music or any other sounds,

Well, that's probably because you have lots of bass on your recordings...most likely too much.

Absolutely not. Reading anywhere near +4dBfs WILL result in clipping. You want to average about -10dBu wih transients never reaching above -2dBu.
