    why does my sub keep blowing

    ok i have a 12' Kicker L7 and ever since i got a new amp i switched from a garbage visonik amp to a garbage sony amp its been screwing up... If you know how the sub has the 4 wires coming of the cones that go to the plates on the screws that connect to were you hookup the wires.. well first time one of them broke off the plate so me and my dad re sodered it back on and know that same one and a wire from the other coil broke off.. Is it just my ****** amp or a bad sub.. Please help me i want my bass backkkkk

    it's probably just bad wiring. i dont think an amp can disconnect wires by sending elctricity to a sub. just connect the other one and it should be good

    these are the wires inside your box right? that hook directly to the subs. they may have just been lose from the manufacturer and all the bass disconnected them

    sounds like your amp is tuned all wrong and causing clipping and causing the tinsle leads to break you probably got the bass boost turned way up huh?
