Hello, I am new to these forums and using subwoofers and anything else car audio too. I have a question for those who might be able to help.
I have 2 12" Sony Xplods. (1300 Watt each) They are hooked up to a Mitsubishi receiver that I use in my home it works well, hits hard and never overheats. But for the few years I've had these I think they might be going to hell with overuse. You can hear strange noises come from them when lower hertz bass hits at high volumes, sometimes even at low volumes. Perhaps something with a voice coil or overuse?
If anyone knows why it's doing it, give me a headsup
ps. I use a hardware equalizer to make it hit harder with the lower hertz cranked up. While I realize this might be the problem, I have used it for about a year but its only been the past month that even with the equalizer that it started making these noises.
pps. I know you aren't supposed to have them on a home receiver and know they might be damaged and have to buy new ones but I am seeking knowledge on the matter. Money is no issue.
