    sub cant handle power??

    I am using an MA Audio Hard Kore 15x2. Dual 2 ohm, 15" woofer. Rated at 2000 rms and 4000 peak. Now I am using an orion 2500d pushing 1700x1 at 2 ohms which is what the gain is set to. (set with my AC meter). Now after I have been playing it for a little bit of time (1/2 hour or so) the middle of the sub get hot and I can smell the sub working. Shouldnt it be able to handle 1700 watts RMS if it is rated at 4000 peak? I am thinking maybe it was my enclosure so this is my enclosure with measurements, maybe somebody can tell me if its my enclosure causing the issue. Any input helps guys, thanks. He is my enclosure.

    If you have a dual 2 ohm woofer, there's no way you can be running a 2 ohm load to the amp unless you have one voice coil hooked up...you're likely running at 1 ohm, which would be sending the driver more than its rated for

    Orion 2500d(mono amp) except one is to one voice coil and the other is to the other voice coil.

    You have the voice coils wired in parallel.

    The amp is looking at a one ohm nominal load.

    he has a vc wired to each output. BTW i bet its your enclosure, looks small and ported incorrectly.

    your amp is not seeing a 2 ohm load you are overpowering it, so you need to wire it 4 ohm or somthin
