    Icon9 HELP! sub distorted

    So im a moron, I thought i had my gain all the way down but no it was all the way up, now my right 12 sounds distored but my left 12 sounds fine, and when i turn the gain down it gives bass but i can still hear the distortion when im next to the sub. I had to hook a new amp to them cuz i fried my other one by not capping off the wires during a move. I pressed on the sub and it doesnt scratch but both subs move when u press on one or the other. And i can hear air moving in and out. Needless to say they hit real hard for like a day then a heavy bass song made em stop. Help please im soooooo sick of trouble shooting. Blah

    Florida is full of SPL people. you should be able to go to a shop and get help. You would have the subs out of phase. you could have dameged one sub. I believe flroida has a SPL forum. search it.
