Sure plug it in the wall and see what happens

LOL, when I did DB drag, I blew a woofer and pulled all 4 (to swap out) and we decided to plug a good one to the wall and believe it or not, it took a good 30 seconds to smoke it..

no. do not plug it into the wall unless you want to kiss the voice coil goodbye. The "stuck" scenario happens when part of the copper windings on the former (or bobbin) fuse to the sidewalls of the area where the voice coil former is supposed to move up and down inside of. If its frozen and you apply 60 hz at around 2000 watts and it doesnt immediately break free, itll literally melt a fair amount of the copper on the part of the winding that got stuck in the first place. Additionally, if its stuck ,its not long for this world due to the aforementioned issues, its in need of a recone

2 PPI PC275's running 1 sub each atm, waiting to put the SQ 2200.1 back in and add the PhoenixGold Elite.4 once my electrical is up to snuff

Rear speakers: stock

I just added 5 SoundQubed stickers, and despite having no equipment upgrades, it added 76 DB!!!

The ONLY kicker even remotely worth reconing is a solo X
