    I really don't know how long they will last when I once had a scraped coil it lasted minutes before it blew out(melted) where the scrape was, yours may not have scraped but holding down one side while it's playing will do it, so if anything pull them out and look at the coils through the vent with a flashlight just have someone hold the light while you raise the cone evenly from underneath and look around the coil if it scraped you will see it.

    Same here. The first pair I dealt with both had it, but I figured it was just because the previous owner had them banging against the hatch. I worked on a friend's enclsoure with his R in it, it also had these. I don't know what the deal is.

    If there still playing at full tilt like normal your probably good man I wouldn't stress it to hard it's cosmetic as long as they still read with the dmm and the spots are not all the way through now you know to tell your wife what I tell mine, unless your installing new subs as a present you better not be setting anything else in my trunk! just as it would be in divorce she get's 2/3 the engine and the cab!

    Re: Damaged Type R

    My buddies 12s have been taking the abuse from a Nine.1 for years and they never did that. If the damage doesn't go all the way through the surround, you'll be fine. If it does, pick up some e6000 or rubberized super glue and dap it from both sides. As far as sub recommendations, you'll want something with similar power handling unless you upgrade the amp. Look into the SA series instead of the SD. There are also TONS of other companies making a strong line in that power range including incriminator audio, obsidian audio, SSA, and many more.

    Probably obsidian. I think they are around 160 or so a pop.

    Re: Damaged Type R

    I would say so. You can pound on type R's but the Obsidian subs are built just as well as all of the sundown/Fi equipment and are all easily reconable.
