JL 12W2 Subwoofer

The Subwoofer works when the speaker is pushed in by hand but when you let the sub go it works for about 5 seconds and quits again until you push it back in.

Happened to me, i also had a metallic/iron smell coming from my sub... i pronounced it dead. had to buy a new one and it worked fine... if you believe its not dead then your amp is not getting enough power and most likely shutting off (protection mode), you can try buying a cap, farad 2 or better will work and is suggested for larger subs anyways

One sub not working


Try this....the speaker that is not working, gently work the cone up and down with you fingers. Be careful not to go right thru the cone. One hand underneath(near webbing) and one hand on top over the dust cover. If you hear any kind of scratching, or noise, or it's not "breathing" freely, then the voice coil of that speaker may have overheated, or the speaker has extended above and beyond its range of movement (called excursion). And may as well be blown/dead/fried..however you want to say. I hope this is not the case for you.

I wonder if i get two kicker cvx 10 can be push by jl audio 500.1


It can but it'd be a waste for your subs. 1 of those by itself will handle that amp. it'll push them just not really hard, i'd recommend an upgrade to a 1100-1200 watt rms amp if you're gonna run 2 cvx's. if you only run one sub that amp'll work well...
