    Sub noise caused by low power?

    I bought a used sub off a friend and was trying to test it out on a old home stereo. It was making a rattling noise around the coil vent could this be me just under powering the hell outta of it its rated at 1500rms and the stereo is only 200x2. I put my multimeter on the coils they are both at 2ohm and when I push on the sub it doesnt sound like its grinding on anything.

    nope underpowering does nothing to it. It may be air from the vents though.



    I am protesting Skar by giving them added exposure in my signature.

    Heres a quick video http://s238.photobucket.com/albums/f...617_204347.mp4

    Could it be that the ohm load was too low for the home amp?
