    Did i blown my subs.

    Houstan, we have problem. Sub is making a wierd noise. Sounds kinda like air rushing out of a gap by the sub that i tried to seal with weather stripping. Could it be a blown spider? I played it for 3 seconds then turned it off. Thoughts? Just put it in a ported box i made. It was running fine 3 hours ago in a sealed box.

    If it was playing so soft I'm not sure if the sub is blown or not. Simply pushing on the center of the sub can tell you if it's blown or not, it shouldn't make any noise, feel overly stiff, and should feel smooth and not scratchy. If you have a multimeter measure the resistance of the sub. Post pictures of the spider if you can

    Im thinking its air rushing out of screw hole that i couldnt seal very well. Would that cause the sub to move but not play much sound?

    So all it was was the box not being sealed properly?

    No, the sub cutout is to big in one place where i sanded it. Little weather stripping and electrical tape later and wala, sounds great.
