    sub making weird noise?

    one of my subs makes a weird noise when turned up over 12 out of 30 for volume... which means im not turning it that loud before it makes the noise. Its more of a flapping/ thwapping noise, Its hard to describe but I can also see the sub moving in aand out more than it should. Just wondering if it might be blown or what could be wrong with it. Tried searching but i couldnt find anything about it. thanks for any help/

    Re: sub making weird noise?

    i bought the amp and subs and box together. The box was alreasdy wired so I just left it how it was. In the box theres the + and - wires for each sub but leading into the box theres just the one + and - wire so somehow the wire splits into two.... but i have no clue how lol

    Re: sub making weird noise?

    alright...i have a possible answer for ya....if they are in a common enclosure, you have blown one sub, and the other is working it's @$$ off....get a dmm and test the coil on each sub

    remove the sub from enclosure, remove all wiring, then find the resistance of the coil +to+ and -to-, repeat

    Re: sub making weird noise?

    if the sub is a 4ohm you should get a 4 on the meter...if you don't get close to a 4, ie way over or -- then the sub is shot...or plug each seperately into the amp to see if they work

    Re: sub making weird noise?

    oh ok ill try that.. if the sub is done for do you think it would be worth it to just get two new ones ( diff kind) or just buy a new one of the 8000. This is like the third thing thats gone wrong witht them
