I have a 10" kicker cvx powered by an alpine mrp450 pushing 400 watts wired at 2ohms. Sub's rms is 600w so im underpowering it, but I push this baby hard and it pushes right back. I've had it for 4 years now and kept it protected using a sub grill, but I want to keep it running good. I saw the sticky for sub motor polishing. Is this needed at this point, or is that for really old speakers? I also reconditioned the rubber on my car using 3m back to black and that stuff is amazing. Made my windshield wipers better, my windows seal better, and all rubber and vinyl look overall better. Should I use this on the cvx's rubber surround to keep the rubber conditioned and stitching good and looking fresh? Anything else to maintain a sub?
Also if I do take it out, I want to keep my box in good shape too. I've only taken the sub out 2-3 times, but I can tell where the screw holes went in the box. I would like to do the t nuts and bolts if I take it out. Can this be done on a sub that has already been screwed more than once (nonvirgin **** box)? If so should I position the nuts in a different spot (although this would put my sub at an angle and not look as cool)?
Almost to winter break here and after finals I want to take car of the system so getting my info ahead of time. Thanks everyone.
