If you push on the cone and you hear scratching from the coil, thats not good. Or if the cone does not move freely.
And smell it- best tactic, you never know how good something is untill you smell it...the subwoofer....ok back on track.
The stink of electrical burns is a sign of coil damage.
That sounds like coil damage. The voice coil may be bent around the pole in the motor structure, that is caused by a loose magnet or stressing the cone past the x-max.Originally posted by: 99CouGSweetRide
my friend had two lightning audio subs (got 'em for free with a RF amp), and one of them is kid of sucked in towards the box. You can push it in a little and it makes a loud scratching noise. Pretty odd tho, like something was reversed and it just got sucked inward.
