I have a 1 ohm dvc and my voice coils are reading at .25 but the subwoofer seems fine and beats hard. It does have a recone on it. When I put the meter in the terminals it's reading <.25 but when i touch actual tinsels it closer to ohm. is there a problem with my sub or cheap walmart multimeter any help would be appreciated.>

Garbage metter is garbage. If everything's fine then I certainly wouldn't get my panties in a bunch over some cheap ass metter. When you touch the two leads together what does it read?

Saying "clipping doesn't kill speakers" is a half-truth at best. Technically no, clipping itself does not hurt the speaker. But in clipping your amp, you can easily create a situation that WILL kill the speaker. Was the squared waveform the DIRECT cause of the failure? No. In the end, the answer is, always has been, and can only be... heat kills speakers. BUT, clipping increases heat generation, sometimes by a drastic amount. So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.
