I have 2 kicker ssmb6 that I was getting ready to sell. So I am hooking them up for the guy and one of them has no response at all. No noise at all. The other plays well. They have a total of maybe 8 hours of playing time. They was working fine when I removed them. They have been sitting every since. What do you think the problem is.

Did you throw a meter on the coils?

How do you do that. I have a meter. Do not know how to use it.

Red lead to the pos terminal on the speaker
black lead to the neg terminal on the speaker
set the dial on the dmm to the horseshoe looking thingy (ohm symbol) to measure resistance
Coils should be around the area they are listed

a 4 ohm coil will read somewhere between 3-4.5ohm . :)

Thanks will give this a shot.

I put them on the meter and the bad one is reading 13.9 to 14.1 and the working speaker is reading at 6. so what does this mean.

Means you got a driver with a bad coil it looks like. :)

Thanks Ramos, so it is trash. Maybe I will try to experiment with it. I have never taken a speaker apart before.
