    speakers sounding weird

    well the past couple of days my speakers have been sounding different than they did before. They sound "crowded" at parts of songs with noise. It also sounds like their is too much bass going to them. I havent changed anything on my amps/deck so i dont see why it would change.

    any ideas?

    Re: speakers sounding weird

    what could be causing the coils to "roast" these speakers arent even that old. maybe a year... type r's and running at RMS power.

    what readings should i be getting off a DMM?

    measure the resistance across the coil with a DMM

    Yeah, measure the DC Resistance of the speaker with a DMM.

    Re: speakers sounding weird

    OK sorry for the stupid questions.. but measure it at the crossover on the speaker side? Could it also be the deck with bad tuning?
