    Think my speakers are blown.

    I purchased 2 Alpine SPR-17c door speakers from a guy on craigslist, didn't test them (my mistake, I know.) I think they are blown. When pressing on the cone it's scratchy sounding, and when I hook them up to my head unit amp when pretty much any bass comes through it has a slight rattle. Is there anything I can do to fix this or are they toast?

    I don't know much about car audio....this probably won't change if I hook my amp up to them will it?

    could be dirt in the coil gap. try blowing them out with a air compressor. i've had plenty of door speakers in my off road vehicles ive had over the years do the same thing. might not be blown just dirty.

    move the cone up and down by hand while blowing them out. get the hose down in there good without damaging them.
