I'm sorry to tell you but it sounds like you may have put to much bass at a decent power rating through them and there not designed to be replaced. The whole speaker needs to be replaced. Do not use it as you are running a risk of shorting the circuitry in your radio or amp if the impedence is off from the blown speakers and can burn it up also.

I have a single 15" sub woofer in a box it was

Simply put, burned voice coil. Either too much power can do this or not enough power with distortion. solution- if the sound is clear then its too much power- turn the amp down. If the sound is distorted and raspy- its not enough power and your getting distortion-get bigger amp.

My type r sub has no sound on one coil but if i hook it up to the other coil it has sound and if i hook it up how its supposed to be hooked up it has no sound. What could it be???

You have to buy a new one because its coil has been burned. If you use tha woofer with the working coil then it can damage the amp. So try to buy a new one.

I got a 15" TS-VR15

Honestly man it sounds like you have burned up the voice coils inside the only way to fix it is to take it to a place where they specialize in fixing car subs.. And to be honest 80% of the time its just cheaper to go buy a new Sub. Sorry to hear that i know they arent cheap i burned up the voice coils in my 2 15" Kicker Comp CVR's and they wanted over 140$ to fix each one. And well to be honest after they tear off the factory glue whos to tell how long thiers will last. Hope this helps Dont forget to give me a good vote even though im sure you didnt want to hear that...

Need to know how to wire a dual voice coil subwoofer

All a Dual Core Speaker is, is Two speakers, sort of, in one. It has Connections for the Mid-range and Woofer, so The Inner speaker, is the Mid Range and the Outer, is the Woofer. Wire + to + (Red to Red), & - to - (Black to Black)

Just had a response on a problem ive got with my sub thank you to '' etirbynnor '' but im being thick now haha what is a sub voice coil thank you

Hello again empsglen,

"If the sub voice coil is open, you will get exactly no sound. No crackling, nothing.

Use a multimeter to check the sub voice coil. If the meter reads infinity, the coil is open and to the amp, it's as if there's no sub connected, and you will need to replace it."

Sorry about that.

OK, my clarification assumes that you know how to set a volt-ohm-milliamp (VOM), or multimeter up to measure ohms, and that you have such a meter or have access to one.

The voice coil is the part of your sub that connects to the amp output and causes the cone to move in and out in response to electrical signals. If it is open (broken, burned) there will be no electrical flow and the cone will not move. A good voice coil will read a resistance (impedance) on the multimeter. If the coil is open, the meter reads as if it wasn't even connected (infinity) and if the coil is shorted, the meter reads zero (dead short). Simply put the meter across the speaker terminals and read the results.

Speaker aint hitting like it should and i smell something burning from the speaker what could this be and how can i fix it

sounds like you are frying the voice coil! Push the centre of the cone in and if you hear a crackle then time to buy new speakers.. sounds like they are on way out if you can smell burning!

Speakers are smoking

Do they still play? if they do then don't turn them up so loud. What that smoking is, is the coating on the voice coil turns being burned off. It happens when you are over powering or distorting the speaker very heavily. I would recommend more easy listening. Good luck.

Smoke coming out of subs

If smoke has come out of the subwoofer, the speaker itself, that means the voice coils have been heated excessively and they are damaged or in this case, I'd say completely blown. Voice coils blow because they've been driven too hard, too much power, too much distortion for too long.

If you can get access to the front of the subwoofer speakers, gently put even pressure with your fingers near the middle of the cone, just around the edge of the centre dust cap and push gently and slightly inwards. If you hear or feel a "scratchy" type sound or feel, or if they dont move in freely, they are blown. And if that's the case, your amp could be damaged as well.

Most modern car amps have circuit protection and will shut down when they detect a load greater than they are used to so the amp MAY be ok. One way to test the amp is to hook another speaker to it, any speaker as a test is ok, and see if sound comes out. Make sure all power is off when connecting and disconnecting speakers!
