    Hmmm?

    Why does my subwoofer smoke like Snoopdogg on the low notes?

    Clipping or too much power or both. Last time I remember doing that was with 2500rms to a low end 15" on free-air. Took it like a champ at first but smoke city after 5 seconds.

    Re: Hmmm?

    I dunno, shouldn't be from too much power because I only hooked up one coil so that's only half the power.
