    Sub buzzing/humming noise

    I have a jl audio 500/1 v2 amp and right now I have a kicker l5 10" hooked up to it. I haven't had a problem with it until one day the sub cut out. Later I went to the trunk and the low ohm light was on the amp and there was a hum noise coming from the l5. I quick checked all the wires and everything looked okay. I unhooked the sub and the light came off. I Hooked up a different sub I have and it sounded fine and the ohm light wasn't on. I haven't looked into it further yet but is it safe to say the l5 is blown?

    Forgot to add that the sub smells funny when I took it out of the box

    The sub is probably done. Meter it. These amps have a light indicating low ohms?
