    Safe to test possibly blown sub on amp?

    Would it be safe for my amp and subs to test out my 2 12 inch Type R's on my new monoblock 1700 watt amp if one of the subs might be blown?

    There is no distinct scratching noise when I press down on the center of the sub.

    They are both wired down to 1 ohm

    I do have a dmm handy, if they are blown I won't get a solid 4 ohm reading I am guessing? I am getting a solid 1 ohm rating from speaker wires.

    I had an L5 that the coils read fine but every time you put more then 200wrms to it amp went to protect. Shorts in the VC sometimes still read fine

    Thanks for the input guys. Now I just have to wait for my amp to come in the mail this week then I will see if they are still fully functional
