    if that is the case i bet the motor is misaligned or somthing... take it out of the box and see if u can tell if the magnet looks like it is off center or anything.... also look to see if the tinsel leads are hitting the underside of the cone.... another ? what kind of subs is it. do you only notice this noise at high volume or all volume levels?
