    Smelt my sub on 1 song

    I smelled my sub getting a hot today for the first time and I was playing white girl by jeezy. No other song has done that. I never had that happen before no matter how loud I was. Is it the lows of that song or what?

    white girl packs a low end punch

    Are you using some sort of bass boost?

    I'd bet the enclosure is tuned around 30-32hz. White girl peaks right there and if he is tuned there the subs is doing VERY little moving for the entire song. That song is 30hz and like 60hz back and forth. 60hz it too high to get movement to cool and 30hz is near tuning. Most music has hard bass in the 40's generally and that's right where boxes tuned mid to low 30's move the most, giving them better cooling than White Girl will.
