    yea, i didn't bother to look at the voice coil, which most likely was dmamged the 1st time..i used speaker glue, i email rf tech and they send me the link to the place to buy it from.....
    i leanred a lesson...i now i had the gain up alil to much, and thats only because i had the bass on the radio pretty much all the way down so i heard nothing till i turned the gain up, but this was when i didn't kno the gains could do any harm.....i learned, and hope tp still learn....

    turn down your gains,

    sounds like your driving it into clipping.

    on my sub my voice coil separated from the spider, but upon looking i didnt know at first.. It looks like its still on regular but right where the cone is connected to the spider , the spider is protruding outward.. YOu can tell if you have two subs because one will be slightly pushed out more than the other one.. if you only have one sub to look at though you might not notice.. If you push the cone in it will pop back in place.. be kind of gentle though so you dont mess up the voice coil. I reglued m the spider back down.. i dont know if that will work though..



    brahma 12 in 1.9 cf ported enclosure tuned to an ugly 38hz..

    REVO amp
    stock speakers in the front..

    looking to upgrade..
