    what to look for when buying used subs?

    i have a cusin thats selling some 2 rockford 12's and a box for $110 because he blew his 500 watt amp.

    is there any way to see if they are still good with out hearing them?(i know that probly not a very smart but i have no other way)

    im not sure on the model or what amp he was useing. but ill find out soon
    it might be a good deal if they work , but i need to know what model they are first...

    well to make sure the voice coil is ok just push it in and if it crunches then it is blown if not there's a chance that it still works

    Throughout the excursion of the sub it should move smoothly in and out.
    If it doesn't feel smooth, don't buy them.
    Look for any damage to the sub. Especially around the surrounds and cone area.
