Ok so I'm kind of pissed first of all that I spent a lot of time typing this out already like 4 days ago and it never even posted on the site.. so I'll try again but a quick explanation.
My Pioneer amp keeps blowing subwoofers, gone through three, below is the power ratings and what I'm using.
Amp: Pioneer GM-D7500M, Mono block Class D.
-400w rms @ 2ohms
-200w rms @ 4 ohms
8guage power and ground wires, both good.
Running a single 10in sub.
Pioneer Premier TS-W1008D4
-DVC 350w rms. Wired in parallel to 2 ohms.
Eclipse 10in, something...
-SVC 300w rms, wired in at 4ohms.
-Gain is set on "Normal" which is 1/4 of the way up. Not high enough that it should blow any of these subs.
-Bass boost at 0.
-Freq about 80-100hz,
-Set to LPF.
Deck has 4v pre outs.
Anybody have any idea why they keep blowing? I've been installing this stuff for the last 6 years off and on, and never had this problem before. No reason they should be blowing so soon, I had two of the Pioneer subs and one blew within a week and the other in under a month, and the eclipse sub took 2 days.
Any help is appreciated. Any questions, just ask. thanks.
