I only have one of these speakers, and I tried hooking it up to my home stereo but when i give the subwoofer more power it tends to make a cracking, popping noise. One person told me that it was that the subwoofer was getting too much raw current, is there any way to remedy this?

 
Oh, also, keep in mind that the sub is completely new, it hasn't been used very much at all and the sub is supposed to be for a car applications, but i figured since the sub was 8 ohms it would be fine on my home system, then again, it has been popping so I dont know.

 
I don't currently have it in an enclosure because i wanted to make sure the enclosure wasn't the problem. Also, I have tried to just send it low frequencies but some high frequencies are getting through. If you really believe that is the problem, how can I just give it low frequencies? Also, I do have an equalizer that i have tried to use to just send it the lows.

 
I'll try to connect it better, and I'm pretty sure it's not bottoming out, cause it isn't moving all that much. I think that in a box it would be better though. Well anyway, it seems that I have a few things i can try out. Thanks

You can wire those subs up @8 ohms if they are both SVC4 ohm subs,and that amp will run fine after being tuned properly...
