I have a Pioneer 760W max power hooked up to 2 12inch rockfort Punch DVC and at first I heard like a noise (like when ur on the wrong channel on a radio) and then one of the subs stopped working, I asked a technician to verify it and he hooked the sub to a machine and he said the wires inside were burnt and there was nothing I could do.
I'd like to know if 1) I can fix it and 2) can I buy another 12 inch with the same power but different make to replace it.
Sorry, a blown speaker can't be fixed. You can replace it with another 12 of similar capacity and it will sound okay. However, if you are looking for a very clean sound I recommend replacing with another DVC. Try ebay or craigs list.

Sounds like u may have a loose or poorly connected speaker wire.. some times installers use electrical tape witch can come off or cause issues..I would check all speakers independently withe the balance and fade options on the deck, then find the ones affected and then check wiring to them , if all wiring connections are good, then u may have blown a speaker.. if you had brand new speakers install you could have blown the voice coil by amplifying the volume too loud too fast...
Most speakers have a Break-in Point.. meaning not to put speakers at max volume for the first few days..
likely the speaker is blown, otherwise it is a wiring problem, or the player/deck is faulty. replace the speaker. get a good aftermarket pioneer is my advice, if a shop does it they will ensure the wiring is hooked up properly. if it is still a problem after, replace the deck.
RED IS USUALLY POSITIVE RED-WHITE IS MORE THAN LIKELY NEGATIVE TO CHECK SPEAKER POLARITY: 1. HOOK LEADS UP AS I DESCRIBED 2.TAKE A AAA,AA,C,OR D BATTERY 3.CONNECT POSITIVE SIDE TO POS ON BATTERY...NEGATIVE TO NEG END...... 4. IF SPEAKER "CONE" PUFFS OUTWARD..POLARITY IS CORRECT. IF IT PULLS INWARD..POLARITY IS REVERSED
pull the rubber boot back off the wiring harness in the crease of the drivers door and check for broken wires there. common problem due to the number of times these wires flex to allow the door to open and close
The head unit should have a RCA Sub Out. The RCA wire goes to the Sub Amplifier, along with power, ground, and a blue remote wire from the Head Unit. Next, the Sub Amp is wired to the Subwoofer with speaker wire. Without an amplifier your sub won't make any noticeable sound.
You might not want to do that. The 760W Pioneer amp might require larger wire due to the power consumption of the amp. Most amplifiers require a direct wire from the battery to the amp. The power wire for the factory amp might not require very large wire and if you tie into the power for that amp the fuse could blow and wiring in your car could melt or catch fire, The best installation is to run the recommended guage wire from the battery directly to the amp with a properly rated in-line fuse.
The antenna wire, witch should be yellow. is not supposed to be hooked up to 12 volts. It is only meant to be used as an on censer . If that wire is the reason your speakers are not working then the stereo is defective. That wire should have 12 volts coming out of it when the stereo is on. And hooking it to 12 volts could have damaged your stereo. I would look at the wire diagram again before doing anything else.
So anyway if you are not using the power antenna wire cap it off and leave it alone. you do not need it. Check all of your connections again and follow the wire diagram. Good luck.
