    Icon8 Another bad day!

    I bought a set of New Morel Tempo 6X and had them installed like 2 days ago and all of a sudden they start distortioning. Well I take them out and sure enough the tweeter and the speaker is blown on one side. I have a JL Audio 450/4 on them. Is that amp to much for my components? Should I go with some other set that will take the power? I really cant spend over 200.00. Seeing that I bought them online they cant do anything for me cause I installed them. It will take over a month to get them repaired is what they said. I really can not be without my tunes for that long. What to do. What other 6.5 components do ya guys recommend that will handle that power? Thanks.

    No offense, sounds like a user issue, not equipment issue....

    Re: Another bad day!

    I really didn't listen to them that loud. I didn't even turn it up all the way. I picked it up listened to it for about half an hour and the next day I could here a rasping noise coming from that side. But thanks the installer commented something about the crossover being really cheaply made and that that might of been a problem besides it having to much power from my amp. Should I invest in other crossovers? What do ya think?

    As far as settings they set all the settings at the installers. I have a stock navagation in an escalade with a cleansweep. So I didn't mess with it really.

    Power doesn't kill speakers, people do.

    You should invest in a new installer!
