    I need help with sub and amp. Can't find the problem

    well i turned my h/u off and turned it back on and now my sub doesn't work. so all of yesterday i checked everything. its not the rcas. i tried to blow one of my old 25w door speakers and i took like five minutes to blow it. but my nine.1 should be putting out 450w at 4 ohms . and i hooked up my fi q to my friends amp which is 600w at 4 ohms and my sub didn't work . so did my possibly broken amp break my sub too?

    perhaps your friend's amp is not working? Take a DMM to the coils of the sub

    Huh ? So neither your amp or your sub is working ? Best start by dong what was already said. Use a DMM , set it to the little horse shoe looking thingy . And check each coil individually.

    Well if something went haywire with the amp, it could have passed dc and killed one or both of the subs coils.
