    My 4x6's are FAPPING!

    seriously...today i got my new 4 chan amp and amped my two front speakers. I have Power Acoustik 4x6 plates. The amp is 125x4 rms @ 4ohm. (or so it says) Whn i put my volume past a certain level, the speaker "faps." thats the only word i know to use on how to describe it. Like it's trying to mid-bass...and its failing miserably....is something simply loose, that i can glue back together, or is it new speaker time for dave? The speaker ratings are 140 max, 70 rms, so i had the gains on the amp down to 1/4. I thought that would compensate....

    no, they both stilll play music just fine. But once i get past 19 on my volume control, the things start "bomp bomp bomp"...like its trying too hard. I also failed to mention its only on the passenger side.

    Sounds like the spider has broke loose from the voice coil, exchange under warranty or replace.

    Re: My 4x6's are FAPPING!

    well 1/4 gain isnt nessecarily low enough power
    on my amp it puts out rms on speaker channels at about 1/3 gain 125 watts
    if you have access to a dmm i would try that to check your gains.
    but it is possible that the speakers just crapped, or is bottoming out possibly because of power.

    No, Andy, I'm sure the context is fine.
