Ok , i have a 95 Talon which is a hatchback car. I have a 12" Type R in a prefab ported box, which i think is my problem. Im powering it with an alpine mrp-500 @2ohms, so it should be getting around 500watts. It seems no matter whenever i turn up for about 20secs , the sub is just starting to smell , like the voice coils are heating up. Gains are all set properly and wiring is right. Could my prefab box be hurting my setup this bad ? If so what are your ideas if you were in my position?
Also everything is almost brand new,along with the new alpine deck i got in the car.
