    Rainbow Problems

    So, I can't figure this out, I may just have to see what my warranty is on these.

    I just bought and installed a pair of Rainbow CMX 265s. They have been in two weeks and are running off a Sundown 100.2. I was listening at about half volume on my way home the other night and the passenger side decreased in volume quite a bit. The mid isn't playing and the tweeter sounds really distorted and won't get very loud.

    Now, I thought maybe I blew the lightbulb, but its fine. I wanted to test where the problem was, so I turned on low volume and hooked my input straight to the tweeter, it sounded fine. Then I hooked it to the mid and it won't play. So I'm guessing something is wrong with the crossover and it screwed up my mid? I have no idea.

    Also, either premieraudio of 6spd, what is my warranty on these? I just bought them from premier.

    Some questions that might be asked, I set my gains exactly how the tutorial says on this forum. I have them at about crossed over around 75. My driver side is fine. I ran 16gauge speaker wire down both sides. My HU is listed below etc...etc...etc...

    Put a DVM on the woofer directly to the terminals and check what resistance you get from them. Also see if the woofer has 'frozen' up or still has easy movement.

    I would send premier a pm since that is who I bought from.

    Where did you install the crossover? If it's inside the door and got soaking wet, that would do it. Ridgeline doors aren't very well sealed.

    The xovers are installed above my kick panels. I have it pulled out right now. I can't take a pic and post it until tonight. It looks fine to me, same as the other one.
