    blown voice coil help

    today i got a 1000watt alpine ZR from a buddy for free and he said it has a blown voice coil, just to see if it worked i hooked it up to a stereo in my house and it made some rattling noises ( not in a box) so i figured its working, cuz i know u get like nothin w/o a box. how ever i turned the bass up and the sub just died. now it wont work at all. my friend also gave me a 1000 watt Kenwood DB, i hooked it up and it worked fine and i actually heard music from it so i know the voice coil is ok how ever the face on it or w/e the front is called is totally ****ed.

    so my question is why did that sub all of a sudden stop working? and is it possible to swap voice coils? any help would be appreciated.

    ps- i know alot about electronics, but im a "newb" to the whole car audio thing so if its possible to fix, i will be able to do it.

    You sure? You can't actually see the voice coil, so if its burnt up you wouldn't be able to see it unless u unaccebled the sub.

    Re: blown voice coil help

    you'll need a new voice coil. You can't buy one seperately. The subwoofer has to get reconed by alpine, if they even have recones for your subwoofer. Most likely the coil did blow due to overheating or already damaged coil. The alpines aren't user-rebuildable so there aren't any screws or anything like that. Call alpine and see what they say.
