    What should I replace my CVRs with?

    Hi all! I don't really want my Kicker CVRs anymore. So I thought... lets get 2 new 12s put in a custom designed enclosure! I would still like to use my existing amp (APSM1300). My price range for new subwoofers would be around 200-300. Or if there's one really good sub that you guys would recommend (AB XFL 12?) that's fine too!

    What I'm looking for in a sub would be loudness.. But just like a lot of people I want it to sound good while doing it. Nice lows would be a plus as well. In regards to space: I have a regular sedan (2001 Mitsubishi Galant to be exact) so I don't have that much trunk space.

    I was thinking Sundown E 12s because they are on sale and seem to perform well... but.. What do you guys think?

    sundown e 12s would be an improvement for sure wire them down to 1 ohm on that amp and in the correct enclosure you would see an improvement

    Re: What should I replace my CVRs with?

    Hello Community,

    A blown subwoofer is usually caused by physical damage to the speaker or by melting the voice coil. The voice coil is a wire that current travels over and is located at the base of the speaker's cone wrapped around the speaker's magnet.

    1. Turn on your system and listen to the subwoofer. If it is producing sound the subwoofer is working. If you can't tell whether or not the subwoofer is making sound, touch the speaker and feel for a vibration. A blown subwoofer will be unable to create sound. Once a subwoofer is blown it is gone.
    2. Check the subwoofer for physical damage. Look along the outer ring of the speaker to see if the speaker has pulled away from the basket. Check the wires that are connected to the bottom of the subwoofer and confirm that both ends of the wire are attached to the speaker. Also, look at the cone of the speaker and make sure there are no tears in the material.
    3. Push on the front of the speaker to see if it moves up and down freely. If you press down on the subwoofer and the cone moves up and down freely, the sub is probably fine. If, when you press down on the subwoofer, you get a "crunchy" feel and the cone doesn't move freely then you have melted the voice coil onto the magnet. Your subwoofer is damaged.

    Best Regards,
    Anthony Martello
