    Burning rubber/ plastic smell from new type X

    I just replaced my type R with a type X 12 inch sub looking for improved sound quality. While sound has improved, it is not that much better, but the real issue is that after songs with a lot of bass, I notice a burning, bad smell coming from the rear of the car. Any ideas?

    I heard that the type X is a real improvement over the type R in sound quality, but was actually worse in smell quality. Im not sure tho, that may just be a rumor.



    No speaker, in the history of speakers, has ever been blown by too little power. Ever. I don't care what your friend told you, he's a dirty liar.

    Seriously I heard Type X's have poor smell quality.

    You can burn a coil a bit without blowing it completely. I have burned up many a sub, but never blown one.
