    Burnt smell on vc help!!!!!

    Ok just finally install my dd2512d4 and have an alpine m850. Wired To 2 ohms. Adjust the gains and so fort. Turn up the volume and start smelling the voice coil. Can't figure out why. I miss my bass. My amp says roughly 800 watts at 2 ohms should be perfect for dd2500 series.

    What does your box look like? Make sure bass boost and any loud functions are off and sub level on your deck isn't cranked and only turn your deck about 3/4 of the way up at the most

    If you're not using loud or bass bass boost settings your gain is set too high.

    pick up an Oscilloscope (mini about $60 and good for any future installs) to set your gains..

    IF it is a new subwoofer it will be smelly for a little bit till the excess glue is burned off.. All of my subs were stinky at first then stopped after a little bit of playing.

    Get a multi meter and measure each coil and then measure your total load and make sure that is fine. If its a dual 2 each coil should measure close to 2 and total should be close to 1 if not you know the issue is with the coil or your wiring

    Also check your voltage at the amp, it may be a bad ground.
