today i was listing at like volume 18 out of 40 and my 6x9" made a horrible sound
then when i got to my destination i check it out and it was blown, the cone had torn off the bottom part so it was just flapping im just wondering why it would blow if the the speaker is only a 8 months old and its rms is 80 watts and it was gettin like 55 watts i just dont understand why it would blow like that if any could give me a logical reason as to why it blew please reply to this thread

clipping. it doesnt matter if you were sending it 2 watts...if you were sending it clipped signals...it can blow. were you gains cranked up real high ?

Do you have them running off any type of high pass filter or sub sonic filter. If not then you may have been playing notes that you shouldn't. I did that once with a kenwood 10" it was funny the entire cone broke out... taking the spider and surround with it... after i sent 900w to it... it's rated at 150w... trying to play a 15hz tone... FIRE!!! FIRE!!!. But either the extreme low frequencies, rediculously hot weather, and of coarse clipping may have been the culprit in this crime of the century.
