Re: New Type X blown? PLEASE help! im so stressed... $%&^#
Well, Id say logically, either your sub is blown or there is something wrong with your amp...
So I mean, get a DMM, see how many ohms each coil is puttin out...
If they are correct (4ohms for DVC 4Ohm, or 2ohms for DVC 2ohm)
If they are see that your amp is on, and functioning properly ( I dont think the amp is the problem, but who knows)
Try pushing in the cone on the sub by hand, with the stereo off. Can you hear the scraping sound?
Anyways, put 2 and 2 together, you've blown it, and probably due to clipping it, or bottoming it out.
Is this thing ported? Is it sealed?
But whatever, you blew your sub, cause you dont have a clue, just like everyone else in here that ever blew a sub for the first time.
DMM (Digital Multi-meter, get em anywhere) BUY ONE. IT IS YOUR BESTEST FRIEND IN CAR AUDIO -- Sorta.
As for buying it 2nd hand from a person, and not a store... It is quite possible that THAT person was a retard, and blew it off the get go - Slapped it back in the box, and sold it to the first person that came around. $200 for that sub is cheap -- I dont beleive that anyone in thier right mind that had a BRAND NEW sub, would sell it for almost 1/2 price.
Buy equipment after you've seen it in action, and if you cant, buy from a COMPANY with a reputable reputation. PERIOD. Anyone that buys anything used is ALWAYS taking the chance of being ripped off. I dont care what anyone says.
YOU'VE BEEN REPREMANDED -- NOW WISE UP, DO IT RIGHT, DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME SO THAT THIS KINDA CRAP DOESNT HAPPEN.
