i have 2 15" rockford fosgate hx2 first series ran down to 1 ohm but only pulling 2 ohm off ampliphier. i have a cheap 2000 wt nitro amp. i know its a piece a crap!
the other day i only had 1 sub working and i cant figure out why the other one is not working.i checked the channels all the wiring and everything is fine exept for me blowing the amp a day later. why wouldnt the other sub turn on? i honestly think that the amp fried something inside my sub i cant see. does anyone have a clue? please help me. these are my babies and im not done with em yet.

my first suggestion is BUY A NEW AMP....why would you run those good subs with a crap amp...i dont get it....

You wont find a problem unless you have an amp to test it with. So get a new amp. Check your tinsel leads on that sub though, something might be disconnected...

That amp didnt put anything near 3000w of power.

You need to see if the sub is fried as well. Get a Multimeter, and see what the resistance is across the coils.

i know that amp didnt give me 3000, but thats what i need. i need more juice. these subs took everything that that amp could possibly give out which was probaly about 1600 x 2.
i honeslty think my voice coil is blown
