    Pluged the audiobahn into the ol wall socket

    Me and my buddy got bored today and decided to blow up thie 12'' audiobahn high exursion sub he had under his bed. Only lasted 2 seconds. I decided to take it apart to see whats inside . What i discovered are audiobahns are big pieces of crap! These things are absolut junk, glad i never fell into that fad.

    What did you find inside? Was there candy?

    Re: Pluged the audiobahn into the ol wall socket

    Just don't get the thought that all audiobahn subs are pieces of crap like that. That is why i do not install the 00 series( high excursion ) because i know from experience that those are "value" subs. I only use the sound Q and above. I did the same thing with the a Ultra Excursion sub ( 1005Q ). Plugged it in the wall, lasted 4 mins.. i timed it actualy 4 mins and 12 second. Took it apart and tried to get the magnets alone but i cannot break that front plate or rearplate/pole piece off of there with a sledge hammer ( Literally ). The Alum and above series are made very well in my opinion.. better than any other sub i have worked with.. exept for the XXX.. that's a beautiful piece of work. But yes i do agree with you when you say the high excursion 00 series sub is crap. I can get you pictures of the motor and the voice coil ( which i had to cut off because it does NOT come loose from the cone by any means. Nor the surround from the basket. The spider did come off after i unscrewed and broke the glue seal of it.. but it's designed to come apart like that.

    Re: Pluged the audiobahn into the ol wall socket

    Yeah i just took my trusty cold steel knife and cut the surround then cut around the spider. I havent seen there higher end stuff apart so i am not going to go and say there crap to. But i will say the high excursions are.
