So I was coming home from work yesterday and I was bumping at a decent volume. I started to smell something burning, but it wasn't coil. I took a reading of the coils from the amp today and wasn't getting the correct nominal. Took the sub out and read the coils from terminals. One coil wasn't reading out at all, and the other was reading like 12. Took the coil out and this is what I found: Recone was done in November or so. This sucks.. =[
I bought my SP415 dual 2 ohm back in October and received it in November and after only 5 months of use, the foam surround is ripped. I can't seem to figure out how this could have happened so any input would be great. Also curious if this is covered by FI's warranty. But here's the setup: -1999 Grand Prix GT Sedan -FI SP415 dual 2 ohm wired to 1 ohm. No spaced spider and no cooling (daily use, didn't see the need) -AQ2200d tuned to 2100 watts RMS using a multimeter -DIYMA oversized 0awg CCA power (appx. 22') and ground (3') with a 200 amp circuit breaker near the battery -Optima Yellow Top -Ohio Generators HO Alt (its an older model but I had them test it and it puts out a minimum of 165 amps and max of 234 amps, and with a smaller pulley it idles at about 200 amps) -Box is appx 4.02 usable cubic feet (after displacement) with sub mounted up and 6" Aeroport entering the cabin -Polk PA660 powering (2) 5.25 Alpine Type S and (2) 6x9 Alpine Type S The electrical is all solid and nothing was rubbing on the sub so how could this happen? The only thing that I could think of is if there were some goofy pressures in the box that were created..but any help is much appreciated.
