    Sundown x8 burned coil

    Hello, finally thanks to ****** brazilian amp, I managed to burn my Sundown X8 coil.
    it still Works wonders at low frequencies, but higher ones, are a mess, it rattles like crazy.
    how can I re-coil it?? I live in spain, and I don't want to throw it away, although I could still use it at low freq, but if there's any cheap way to fix it, you're welcome!

    thanks!

    Sundown sells full drop-in kits. You would take out essentially everything, cone, surround, spider, voicecoil. You just drop that kit in and glue it up.

    Re: Sundown x8 burned coil

    So because the amp was Brazilian it killed your subwoofer huh?

    Or maybe it’s cause you clipped it to death. From your other post we all know you can’t set gains.

    too many freq at once, burn the coil, we all know, over 40-50hz, its all coilburning material. the sub still Works perfect under 50hz. but as you quit the filter, its over.

    That was user error that burned the coil

    Sundown Drop-In Kit Prices (Updated 11-3-16) - Car Audio Classifieds!
    $55 plus glue and shims if you need them

    That box is far too small and most likely a clipped signal from amp
    Those can easily handle 1000w and play up to 80hz without any problems.

    Ahhh so a subwoofer shouldn’t play 40-50hz. Good to know. I did 157s at 44-46hz. Never burnt a subwoofer. Hmmm

    Re: Sundown x8 burned coil

    hey guys, I need Advice:
    what should I do?? spend the money to repair my X8?? buy another sub better suited for my enclosure?? I'll hear your hints. I have 800RMS amp.

    attached some pictures of the enclosure. it has a 2" port tuned to 25-30hz

    Little hint: before fitting the X8, I had a 8" 110RMS sub, suited for that enclosure. needless to say, the difference between the correct sub and oversized X8 is day and night (at win for the X8)

    nOOOOO!! Forghet about new enclosure! that enclosure is custom made for the car. its a Smart roadster, there's no space for a bigger enclosure. I was thinking about quitting the X8, and fitting something lighter, but same as strong at lows like the X8. But the enclosure is given, I can't get around!
