    How do I stop blowing my subs?

    I've had 2 alpine type r 10" subs in the past 4 months, and they have both blown out playing it heavy in 80 degree weather.. All gain settings are on max low and bass eq settings... Also have the rated RMS power on them.

    learn how to set the gains properly, make sure electrical is solid, make sure the box is properly designed and make sure your music files arent clipped to shit and last.....NEVER EVER use bass boost

    Hmm, how high is your output voltage from the H/U when you play the system?
