    is my sub on the verge of crapping out?

    well I opened my trunk to listen to my 12 w7 and its making a weird slapping sound, like its hitting something or getting ***** slapped inside. anything I should look for when i take it out and check. I don't even play it that loud weird. it was no clipped and never distorted.

    could be tinsel slap. if it is, then the tinsel lead will get weaker over time and possibly break if it continues.

    just an idea. the older kickers are notorious for tinsel leads breaking like that.
